Boxing Career

Ike Ibeabuchi planned on joining the Nigerian military before he witnessed James (Buster) Douglas upset Mike Tyson to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 1990. Inspired by the fight, Ibeabuchi decided to become a boxer. As an amateur, Ibeabuchi twice defeated countryman and eventual 1996 Olympic Bronze Medalist Duncan Dokiwari. Ibeabuchi emigrated to the Dallas area with his mother in 1993 and won the Dallas and Texas Golden Gloves tournaments in 1994. As a professional, Ibeabuchi was 20-0 with 15 knockouts. His biggest wins were a twelve-round unanimous decision over David Tua in 1997 and a fifth-round knockout of Chris Byrd in 1999.

Comeback Possibility

Ibeabuchi accepted an Alford plea in 2001 for a conviction which was overturned in a final order in the Nevada Supreme Court on February 8, 2007. While incarcerated in Nevada, Ibeabuchi earned three Associate Degrees in Business, Management and General Studies, and a paralegal certificate, with advanced certifications in business law, civil law and torts.

On September 22, 2010, the Supreme Court of Nevada issued a receipt for Remettitur to reenforce Ibeabuchi's acquital based on the final judgment. On September 3, 2016, the United States Citizen and Immigration Services reissued Ikeabuchi a green card in light of the final order and legalized his status as as a free law abiding resident of the United States of America, and granted his application for citizenship. On September 26, 2016, in the Supreme Court of United States, Ibeabuchi's civil case will be heard, regarding his desire to remove a power of attorney who has retained control over his financial assets, in order that he may recover them on a petition on a writ for certiari.

Ibeabuchi is still considering a return to the ring.[[1]]
