All set for GOtv Boxing Night 17 at TBS
• Buses to move fans from venue after event
Organisers of GOtv Boxing Night, Flykite Productions, have reached an agreement with commercial bus operators to move fans from the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, at the end of the 17th edition of the event (GOtv Boxing Night 17), which holds tomorrow.
According to the organisers, the transportation arrangement was made to make it easy for fans to return to their various homes when the show ends at night. The agreement with transporters will see them make their buses available outside the venue to move fans from TBS up to Ojota. Fans who use the buses are expected to pay the fares.
A spokesman of the organisation explained that the event, which will feature eight fights, including a World Boxing Federation (Intercontinental) super featherweight title fight and musical performances by Burna Boy, Wande Coal, Teni da Entertainer and Daddy Showkey, is a cross between boxing and party.
“This event is conceived to provide maximum festive season entertainment. We have made arrangements with bus operators to provide vehicles to move fans from the venue after the show. This is to ensure that fans do not have difficulties on their journey back home. We have also made arrangements with LASTMA to ensure smooth traffic flow. Security in and around the venue will be top-notch,” he said.
