Heavyweight boxer, Ebenezer “Anambra Tiger” Okoli, has warned Michael “Emirate” Godwin, his opponent at the GOtv Boxing Night 7, to be very prepared for what may turn out to be the fight of his career. Okoli, who is more experienced than his opponent, was reacting to Godwin’s description of him as an old man, who will fall when confronted by youthful vigour.
“He has called me an old man, who is at the end of his career, but I will prove to him that I have a sound engine.
“Car sellers always advise that the engine is more important than the body. I may look old, but I am not old. Even then, my engine is sound,” he said.
The clash between the two boxers is one of the six lined up for the event holding on 1 May at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.
The event will be headlined by the national lightweight title fight between Nurudeen “Prince” Fatai, incumbent champion, and Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph.
Other fights scheduled include the cruiserweight challenge contest between Idowu “Noble” Okusote and Chibuzor ‘Chibunky” Vincent; lightweight clash between Osamudiamen “Shiso” Goodluck and Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu; and a middleweight duel between Chukwuebuka “Wise King” Ezewudo and Ganiyu “Energy” Kolawole.
Sponsored by GOtv, the event is supported by MultiChoice, Paragonis Multimedia Limited, Complete Sports, KSquare Security, Newsbreak.ng, Brila FM, Bond FM and SuperSport. SuperSport will broadcast it live in 47 African countries.
