The age-long sporting rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana will again come to play at GOtv Boxing Night 9, holding at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos, on 2 October.
Two international challenge bouts will feature at the boxing night which include a bout between Olaide “Fijaborn”, national champion, and elite Ghanaian boxer, Raphael Kwabena King.
The other international challenge bout will see national lightweight champion Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph square up to Ghana’s Richard Amenfu.
Jenkins Alumona, Managing Director, Flykite Promotions announced the fight line-up for the boxing challenge at a press conference in Lagos.
He described the two Ghanaian boxers as crack opponents, saying they were carefully chosen to give their Nigerian opponents very tough fights.
“King and Amenfu are highly rated in their country which, as we know, is one of Africa’s boxing powerhouses. They have been picked to provide tough tests for our boxers and fans can expect blockbuster bouts. There is the additional edge of national pride and massive bragging rights,” Alumona said.
He added that GOtv Boxing Night 9 will, for the first time, feature more than six bouts, which is in celebration of the country’s independence and the fifth anniversary of GOtv operations in October.
The event will have the national cruiserweight title fight between Idowu “ID Cabasa” Okusote and Ekeng “Fighting Policeman” Henshaw.
In another lightweight bout, Sikiru “Omo Iya Eleja” Shogbesan will duel with Prince “Lion” Nwoye.
