Adewale Masebinu, popularly called “MASEVEX”

The Current National Light Heavyweight Champion, Adewale Masebinu, popularly called “MASEVEX” has said he was reluctant to get married because of fear that it would impact negatively on his chosen career.

He, however, said that he will be getting married on November 7 because of pressure from his family.

The 33- year old Ikere-Ekiti born boxing champion in a statement said he loves boxing so much that he didn’t want anything that would make him lose concentration.

He said “Since I won the National Light Heavy weight boxing title in 2018, women have been troubling me, and did not give me breathing space because they want to marry me.

“After much thought and consultations with my coach who assured me that marriage will not affect my career, I now decided to go for  my ‘heartbeat’ Adebimpe Kehinde on November 7 at bollad event center  in Ibadan, Oyo State” Masevex disclosed.

The National Light Heavyweight who said he is still eyeing the World Boxing title said he is prepared to go and defend his current title immediately after his wedding, saying he is battle ready for his challenger.
