Organisers of the yearly Oba of Oregun Boxing Fiesta, held at the weekend, have predicted the competition will soon produce world champions for Nigeria.

Sleeky Benson Adeyinka, who pummeled Bamgbola Babatunde to submission in their middleweight clash, has been a hero at Oregun before and after the fight watched by an appreciable crowd at Oregun High School, Lagos.

An excited Adeyinka said he has everything except money to conquer the world.

Chief Organiser of the event, Deji Hamilton Bakare, applauded the pugilists for their doggedness, skills, discipline and commitment, while lauding Oba of Oregun, Dr. Olukumi Olusesan Akingbola (Ikudoro 1), philanthropist and MD/CEO Jaunty Nigeria Enterprises, Obembe Oladiran and veteran sports journalist, Deji Omotoyinbo, for their moral and financial backing.

While seeking support from the corporate world, he stated that more training programmes and championships would be organised regularly.

In the competition, IsiakaTajudeen (Skyforce) defeated Rotimi Samuel in the 76kg class, while Daniel Ogunmade beat Adeyemi, just as Jeremiah overcame Bollard Gbadamosi.

Ayomide Olaniyi outpunched Sulaimon Yekini, while Adedokun Ayobami beat Mohammed Babatunde by technical knock out.
