Recall this is coming after Nollywood actor Charles Okocha and street-pop singer Portable engaged in a celebrity boxing bout.

The pair had finally settled their scores with their fists after Portable alleged contractual issues, which led them to engage in an online feud over an alleged N40m rip-off.

Portable claimed Okocha cheated him out of the money, only sending him a small amount, contrary to a contractual agreement.

However, after the fourth round in the ring, Portable was declared winner of the bout.

Okocha, reacting to the loss, called for the cancellation of the ring fight, alleging it was rigged.

He has since declared his interest to seek a rematch with Portable.
