Afonja Warrior vows to ruin Ghanaian opponent’s Christmas
West African Boxing Union (WABU) Middleweight Champion, Abolaji ‘Afonja Warrior’ Rasheed has vowed to defend his title with the last drop of his blood when he faces challenger, Ghana’s Arye Ayitteh, at the GOtv Boxing Night 13.
The bout is one of the three international title bouts at the seven-fight event scheduled for December 26 at Landmark Events Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The show will also witness performances by Small Doctor, Simi, Falz The Bahd Guy and Reekado Banks.
Speaking in Lagos yesterday, the WABU champion said the age-old sporting rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana will motivate him to give his best when defending his title.
“The fact is it should never be heard that a Nigerian boxer is defeated by a Ghanaian opponent in Nigeria. I will fight with everything I have to retain my title and send Ayitteh back to Ghana empty handed. He is in for a very bad time. I will ruin his Christmas,” he said.
