Box­ing Night 20

The Punch - - SPORTS -

“Nige­ria has not hosted a bout of this pro­file in decades. We made a prom­ise to put Nige­ria back on the global box­ing map and we are happy to see the prom­ise come to fruition.

“We be­lieve this bout pro­vides an in­di­ca­tion of the re­turn to health of Nige­rian box­ing since Gotv launched an in­ter­ven­tion to revive the sport which, long be­fore 2014, was in coma.”

He dis­closed that the ninebout event will also fea­ture live musical per­for­mances by Zlatan Ibile, May­orkun and Orit­se­femi among oth­ers.
