Abimbola targets GOtv Boxing Night’s N1m prize

Apart from showing boxing fans why he is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the scene currently, lightweight star, Emmanuel ‘Ability’ Abimbola, also wants to pocket the Mojisola Memorial Ogunsanya trophy and the N1 million cash prize for the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 31.

The feast of fists will hold at the Molade Okoya-Thomas Indoor Sports Hall of Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, on May 1.

On that day, Abimbola will slug it out with Azeez Ayobami in one of the seven bouts of the night.

The lightweight king is dreaming of retaining the prize he won barely a year ago, saying it would make a good anniversary to win it again.

Abimbola defeated Prince ‘Lion’ Nwoye via a unanimous decision to win the prize at GOtv Boxing Night 28 held on May 1, 2023.

“It was my best day as a boxer. I still remember the win like it happened yesterday. This coming fight will be exactly a year since I won the N1 million. So I want to make it a year to remember with another win on the same date at the same venue. I have the ‘Ability’ to make it happen again; Azeez cannot stop me,” he said.

In the other clashes, Adeyemi ‘Spirit’ Adekanla will battle Segun ‘War’ Adeyemi for the West African Boxing Union (WABU) light welterweight title in what promises to be a cracker. Hard-punching boxer, Hammed ‘Ese’ Ganiyu, will also take on Yusuf Ogunbumi in a light welterweight national challenge fight.

The national welterweight category will see Raheem ‘Baddo’ Animashaun face off with Samuel ‘Apata Roro’ Moses; Sikiru ‘Isho’ Ogunyaju, will confront current national flyweight champion, Sifon ‘Best’ Iwatt, in a national flyweight challenge fight; Adewale Oladeji will slug it out with Afikun Gbenga in the super welterweight category, while Sikiru ‘Omo Iya Eleja’ Shogbesan will meet Batholomew Abuchi in a national catchweight bout.
