Sulaimon “Olags” Adeosun, the youngster billed to fight Majesty Maduka in the national light heavyweight challenge contest at GOtv Boxing Night 14, has declared that his opponent will regret stepping into the ring to fight him. Speaking on Sports Update, a programme of MiTv yesterday, Adeosun said his opponent, who did not turn up for the porgramme despite being invited, stayed away out of fear.
“He was invited and did not come for the show. That tells you he is very afraid of me. I would have shown him hints of what he would get in the ring live on air if he had come. Well, the fight is just around the corner and he would regret ever taking up the challenge to fight me. He is nothing and I mean it. Maduka is nothing, I repeat,” bragged Adeosun.
The event, which holds at the Indoor Sports of the National Stadium, Lagos, on 14 April, will see Nigeria’s Waidi “ Skoro” Usman take another shot, after a failed bid in 2015, for the African Boxing Union (ABU) featherweight title against Michael “Shaka” Nyawade of Kenya. In another international title bout, Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde will confront Djossou “Agoy” Basile for the West African Boxing Union (WABU) welterweight title. Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, winner of the best boxer award at GOtv Boxing Night 13, will fight for the national lightweight title against Kazeem “Ijoba” Badmus.
In another lightweight clash, incumbent ABU title champion, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph will face the challenge of Prince “Lion” Nwoye in a non-title affair. The cruiserweight division will see Razak “Hyena” Ramon take on Abiodun “Finito” Afini, while Chukwuebuka “Wise King” Ezewudo will face Semiu “Jagaban” Olapade in a super middleweight title clash.
The event will be broadcast live on SuperSport in 47 African countries.
