Ghanaian boxer vows to avenge defeat of countrymen…
National lightweight boxing champion, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, has declared himself ready to make Nigeria proud when he fights Ghana’s Anma Dotse for the West African Boxing Union title at GOtv Boxing Night 11, holding at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan, on March 26.
Joe Boy, three-time winner of the GOtv Boxing Night best boxer award, said he is certain that he is top dog in his category in West Africa. He advised his opponent to consult his fellow Ghanaian, Richard Amefu, whom he defeated at GOtv Boxing 9.
“Dotse is in trouble. I am the best in West Africa. He will regret ever coming to fight me. I have trained hard and I will explode like dynamite,” he said.
In the other fights, fast rising boxer, Rilwan Babatunde will exchange punches with Waliu Arogundade in the light welterweight category, while Adewale Masebinu will be in action against Kabiru Towolawi in a lightweight challenge duel.
The best boxer on the night will win N1million cash prize and the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy.
The event is sponsored by GOtv and supported by Federal Inland Revenue Service, MultiChoice, SuperSport, KSquare Security, Paragonis Multimedia Limited, Complete Sports, Bond FM, Brila FM and Newsbreak.ng.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian boxer, Anma Dotse, has vowed to shorten the reign of West African lightweight boxing king, Joseph when they both clash on March 26. Dotse, highly rated in Ghana, said the title is not only for grab but would also avenge the defeat of numerous Ghanaian boxers in Nigeria.
According to Dotse, Ghana is still Africa’s boxing powerhouse. “I feel embarrassed that Nigerian boxers will wake up from nowhere and want to claim dominance. Joe Boy’s time is up and I am coming to end his premature reign,” he boasts.
