Rilwan ‘Babyface’ Babatunde has warned his Tanzanian opponent, Mkalekwa Salehe Omari, to be ready for the beating of his life when they face off in a 12-round WBF International Welterweight Bout at the GOtv Boxing Night 22 on Friday, 2 April, 2021.
In a chat with Newsbreak, the boxer said he is ready to rain blows on the visiting Tanzanian throughout the encounter. He stated that he will send him to the cleaners in the bout, warning him to jettison the idea of stepping in the ring with him.
“Please and please, help me tell the Tanzanian guy that he should not come to Nigeria because I’m going to beat hell out of him,” he said.
Babyface, who has won three Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial trophies at different GOtv Boxing Night editions, said he is in the shape of his life. He revealed that he has been training day and night for more than a week. The barber tuned professional boxer boasted that his fitness level is so high, his opponent would be dead by the time he gets tired.
“I’ve been preparing well because we’ve been in camp for more than one week and we train morning and night. I’m well prepared, I’m ready to go.
“With the training I’m undergoing in camp, if I should get tired, by that time, my opponent…don’t let me boast. But by that time he will be rejected at Igbobi or may even land in a mortuary,” he said.
Babyface urged his fans not to miss the fight at Mobolaji Johnson Indoor Sports Hall of Rowe Park, Yaba, the venue of the event.
GOtv Boxing Night will allow only 150 fans into the venue in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. The event will air live on SuperSport Select 2 on GOtv and DStv.
