Uganda’s Kakembo vows to ‘destroy’ Usman in Lagos
As the December 26 GOtv Boxing Night draws near, Ugandan boxer, Edward Kakembo, has vowed to make life difficult for Nigeria’s Waidi ‘Skoro’ Usman when they clash for the African Boxing Union Featherweight title at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium in Lagos.
Usman, who is Nigeria and West African Boxing Union Featherweight champion, has, however, assured his fans that he would floor the boastful Ugandan in round four.
The Lagos showdown on Boxing Day is viewed by Kakembo as an opportunity to prove that Uganda has the best boxers in this part of the world.
Kakembo has a fight record of nine wins in many fights.
“Uganda has many top boxers and I will prove it by putting Skoro where he belongs,” Kakembo said. “Skoro is not an obstacle. I am the champion in waiting. It does not matter that the fight is taking place in Nigeria. Even in Skoro’s room, I will beat him. Let him know,” he said.
Other fights billed for the GOtv Boxing Night are two national title bouts and a national challenge contest. Olaide ‘Fijaborn’ Fijabi, the rising star of Nigerian boxing, will take a shot at the National Light Welterweight crown when he takes on Sadiq Ahmed in a 12-rounder.
In the Welterweight division, Stanley ‘Edo Boy’ Eribo will fight Sunday ‘Capo’ Olalekan for the title, while the national challenge Super Middleweight bout will be between Sunday ‘Golden Child’ Ajuwa and Rasheed ‘Afonja Warrior’ Abolaji.
All the boxers are currently in training and are eyeing the cash prize of N1.5 million and the Mojisola Ogunsanya Trophy for the best boxer of the night.
Aimed at reviving boxing in Nigeria, the GOtv Boxing Night, which debuted last March, is supported by MultiChoice, SuperSport, Paragonis Multimedia Limited, KSquare Security, Complete Sports, Newsbreak.ng, Brilla FM and Bond FM.
