Tanzania’s Meshack Mwan-kemwa, opponent to Nigeria’s Stanley “Edo Boy” Eribo in the African Boxing Union welterweight title bout billed to hold at GOtv Boxing Night 10 on 26 December, has threatened to make the Nigerian see hell. Smart Boy also boasted that the crowd at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos, will chant his name when he begins to punish Edo Boy.
Speaking from his country, the Tanzanian Professional Boxing Commission welterweight champion said he is fully prepared for the fight and Edo Boy will feel the full impact of his training schedule.
“I am coming to win in Nigeria. The East African region is a place that boxing is alive. A Ugandan won in Nigeria last year. I will repeat the trick. Edo Boy is not in my class. I have defeated better boxers. He is just a stepping stone to something bigger. He will be beaten without me expending energy,” bragged Smart Boy.
Another Nigerian involved in a title contest is Olaide Fijabi, who takes on Raphael Kwabena of Ghana in a reprise of their close-run encounter at GOtv Boxing Night 9, when Fijabi won via a split decision. The Ghanaian is already boasting that he will see Fijabi off when they meet in the West African Boxing Union light welterweight title fight.
“You saw the last fight and I restrained him very well. I had seen him fight so many times and that gave me the advantage, which I intend to deploy this time to put him in his place: on the canvass. He will kiss the canvas in the third round,” Kwabena boasted.
Also in the same division, the highly rated Rilwan Babatunde will face Sikiru Shogbesan in a challenge
