Nigeria’s boxing sensation, Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, has warned Shakiru “No Shaking” Lateef, his opponent at GOtv Boxing Night 8 that he would be shaking when they meet in a light welterweight challenge contest at the event, which holds today at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.
Baby Face, discovered at GOtv Boxing NextGen Search in February, effortlessly saw off the challenge of the more experienced Tope Agboola on his professional debut at GOtv Boxing Night 7.
Speaking in Lagos on Monday, Baby Face said: “I laughed when I heard he calls himself No Shaking. Tell him that only corpses don’t shake. He is not one and the fear of my punches will make him shake when we get into the ring. He will shake until I knock him out in the third round,” boasted the 20-year old.
Also scheduled for the event are five other explosive fights, the biggest of which is the 12-round national middleweight title contest between reigning champion, Sunny Iyere and West African champion, Abolaji Rasheed.
