Crack Ghanaian boxer, Victus Kemavor, has boasted that he will demolish US-based Nigerian, Oluwafemi “The Eagle” Oyeleye, when they clash in an international middleweight challenge bout at GOtv Boxing Night 17 on December 28.
The bout is one of the two international contests scheduled for the event, which holds at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
