The much awaited national lightweight title fight between reigning champion, Nurudeen Fatai and challenger, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph will take place at the next edition of GOtv Boxing Night.
This was disclosed by the organisers at the end of the sixth edition of the event on Friday. Billed for May 1 at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos, the fight will headline the event.
Already, the proposed fight has blockbuster written all over it. Nurudeen, who was knocked out by Joe Boy in a challenge fight at GOtv Boxing Night 4 is nursing a grudge.
Previous attempts at a rematch were thwarted by a lengthy hand injury suffered by Nurudeen. The injury has now healed, disclosed Nurudeen, who climbed the ring to openly throw a challenge at Joe Boy last Friday. Joe Boy, whose explosive style, gave him a first round knockout over Hogan Jimoh Jnr. at the event, said Nurudeen will fall again.
