Global Boxing Federation Title
World Boxing Federation Junior Middleweight champion, Nigeriaâ€™s Gifted Cole Chiori, willÂ tonightÂ take on Finlandâ€™s Teemu Hannes Tuominen in the vacant Global Boxing Federation in Atlanta Georgia in a scheduled 10-round bout.
Chiori promised Nigerians and Africans in Atlanta victory over Touminen, saying he was in top shape for the bout.
â€œAfter being out of the ring for some time now, I canâ€™t wait to bring back the fire come May 12. With the kind of rigorous training I have gone through, I should be able to stop him (Touminen) in the third round. Iâ€™m not underrating my opponent or being over confident, but I have perfected the strategy to stop him early after watching some of the tapes of his previous fights,â€ the Ajegunle-born boxer, who is based in the United States, said.
â€œTouminen is a tested boxer and a worthy opponent any day and could be very tricky,â€ he added.
Cole, whose record stands at 13-0, in a telephone chat with THISDAY from his base in the United States, said he was not intimidated by his opponent, promising to knock him out within three rounds.
The fight which is being promoted by E Butt Promotions and Bishop Entertainment is powered by Achievas Entertainment.
Chiori defeated German opponent, Tom Reiche, to retain his WBF Junior Middleweight title after he stopped him in the fourth round.Â Tonight
