Flykite Promotions, organisers of the GOtv Boxing Night, have explained how the best boxer at the event is chosen.

According to Jenkins Alumona, Managing Director of Flykite Promotions, the decision on who emerges the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night, is made by journalists.

Alumona explained that since the first edition of the event in November 2014, it had been the exclusive duty of sports journalists to rate participating boxers.

“Flykite has no input into who emerges the best boxer. Sports journalists do the rating based on their assessment of boxers’ performances.

The points are collated at the end and any boxer who gets the highest number wins the title. “We have done this to ensure transparency. Without transparency, the growth of the sport, which is the aim of the sponsors, will not be achieved,” he explained.

The best boxer award attracts a cash prize of N1m and the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy.
