Silver medallist at the last African Muaythai Championship held in Morocco, Sadiq Mohammed lived up to expectations at the weekend when he defeated hard-fighting Osaka Oyeniyi at the first Nigeria Muaythai Federation Monthly Challenge held at the National Stadium, Lagos. The victory kept his 100 percent-unbeaten run in the home front intact. 

Also victorious at the championship were Akinyemi Elegbowa, who defeated Taofik Ajasah via unanimous points decision and Ridwan Yahaya, who beat Ajah Gideon.

The most outstanding contest of the evening was the bout involving Ibukun Opaaje and Uzoh Chijioke, where the later was made to kiss the canvass in the very first round of their three-round bout when he ran into a deadly kick that knocked him out.

Speaking at the end of the event, President of the Nigeria Muaythai Federation, Samuel Nweke expressed his delight at the performance of the fighters. He presented cash rewa5rds to the stars.

Nweke, who also commended the national head coach, Gabriel Ukoh Chukwu, the technical Director, Tuesday Wanjoh, other technical officials and stakeholders on the success of the championship, reaffirmed his commitment to the monthly championship.
