The sporting rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana will be revived at the GOtv Boxing Night 9 holding at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos, on October 2.

The fight line-up, which was announced by the event organisers, Flykite Promotions, at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, include two international challenge  bouts. One is between Nigerian champion Olaide ‘Fijaborn’ Fijabi and Ghanaian boxer Raphael Kwabena King. The other will have national lightweight champion Oto ‘Joe Boy’ Joseph square up against another Ghanaian Richard Amenfu.

Jenkins Alumona, Managing Director, Flykite Promotions, described the Ghanaian boxers as strong opponents, saying they were carefully chosen to give their Nigerian opponents very tough fights.

“King and Amenfu are highly rated in their country, which is one of Africa’s boxing powerhouses. They have been picked to provide tough tests for our boxers and fans can expect blockbuster bouts. There is the additional edge of national pride and massive bragging rights,” Alumona stated.

He added that GOtv Boxing Night 9 will, for the first time, feature more than six bouts, which is in celebration of the country’s Independence and the fifth anniversary of GOtv operations in October.

The event will have the national cruiserweight title fight between Idowu ‘ID Cabasa’  Okusote and Ekeng ‘Fighting Policeman’ Henshaw. In the lightweight bout, Sikiru ‘Omo Iya Eleja’ Shogbesan will battle Prince ‘Lion’ Nwoye.

The light middleweight division will provide a challenge bout between Semiu ‘Jagaban’ Olapade and Ebubechukwu ‘Coded Man’ Edeh, while Kabiru ‘KB Godson’ Towolawi will face Emmanuel ‘Mopol Man’ Igwe in a light heavyweight challenge contest. Another light heavyweight clash pits reigning champion Jude ‘Great Jude’ Iloh against Adewale ‘Masevex’ Masebinu.
