GOTV BOXING NIGHT 13
Egyptian and Mediterranean Lightweight Champion, Abdulrahim Ahmed, has vowed to defeat Nigeriaâ€™s Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph when they clash for the African Boxing Union (ABU) lightweight title fight at GOtv Boxing Night 13 on December 26.
The event, which holds at Landmark Events Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, will feature seven bouts.
Speaking from his base in Cairo, Ahmed said he is ready, willing and able to win the title.
“Joe Boy is a small boy. I hold the Egyptian and Mediterranean titles. I have fought better boxers and Joe Boy is in big trouble. It does not matter that the fight is in Lagos. I am going to win,” he said.
GOtv Boxing Night 13 will, in addition to the boxing bouts, feature live performances by Small Doctor, Falz, Reekado Banks and Simi.
Equally fighting for an international title is Nigeriaâ€™s Abolaji â€œAfonja Warriorâ€ Rasheed, who will defend his West African Boxing Union (WABU) title against Arye Ayitteh of Ghana. Two national title bouts are also scheduled. Rilwan â€œBaby Faceâ€ Babatunde will be taking on Chijioke â€œPainlessâ€ Ngige for the national light welterweight crown. The other pits Rilwan â€œReal Oneâ€ Oladosu against Kehinde â€œIjobaâ€™ Badmus for the lightweight title.
A lightweight challenge bout will feature Rilwan â€œScorpionâ€ Oyekola and Jimoh â€œHogan Jimoh Jrâ€, Lukman, while Matthew â€œWizemanâ€ Obinna and Cosmos â€œAwosikaâ€ will clash in the super middleweight category.
