Nigerian boxers in war of words over National Light Heavyweight bout

All is certainly not well between two Nigerian boxers, Sulaimon “Olags” Adeosun and Majesty Maduka after they were fixed to fight for the national light heavyweight title.

Since the match was fixed in March 2018, both boxers have been exchanging threats at every given opportunity.

While “Olags”, the youngster of the two boxers has declared that Majesty will regret stepping into the ring to fight him, Majesty on the other other has said Olags won't last many rounds in the ring.

“He was invited and did not come for a show we were both invited. That tells you he is very afraid of me. I would have shown him hints of what he would get in the ring live on air if he had come. Well, the fight is just around the corner and he would regret ever taking up the challenge to fight me. He is nothing and I mean it. Maduka is nothing, I repeat,” bragged Adeosun.


When contacted, Maduka simply shrugged Olags' brags saying: "I don't talk much, I act and when I do, opponents fall flat on their backs in the ring. These fists of mine determines what I do as well as does the speaking."

The  boxers are two of the 14 boxers expected to thrill fans in the seven fights scheduled to attract attention to the 14th edition of the GOtv boxing night at the Indoor Sports of the National Stadium, Lagos, on April 14, 2018.
