The quartet of Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, Stanley “Edo Boy” Eribo, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph and Waidi “Skoro” Usman will be the leading names at the 10th edition of GOtv Boxing Night 10 scheduled to hold on December 26 at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.

Unveiling the event yesterday in Lagos, the organisers of the GOtv Boxing Night 10 disclosed that seven bouts, including the African Boxing Union (ABU) welterweight title bout and the West African Boxing Union light welterweight title duel, would hold on the Boxing Day.

The ABU title will see Nigeria’s Stanley “Edo Boy” Eribo, national champion, take on Meshack “Smart Boy” Mwankemwa, Tanzanian national champion, for the vacant title, while the sub-regional title bout pairs Fijabi and Ghana’s Raphael “Iron King” Kwabena in a greatly anticipated rematch.

Both boxers clashed at GOtv Boxing Night 9, a close-fought challenge contest that the Nigerian won via a split decision.

Similarly on the cards is the rematch between eternal rivals, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, reigning national lightweight champion, and his predecessor, Nurudeen “Prince” Fatai.

The line-up also includes Waidi “Skoro” Usman, West African featherweight champion, fighting Dare “Fighting Machine” Oyewole in a challenge bout, while Kabiru “KB Godson” Towolawi takes on Felix “Man Mopol” Igwe in a light heavyweight challenge duel.

Two other potentially cracking fights will have Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu clash with Prince “Lion” Nwoye in the lightweight division, while Rilwan “Baby Face” Oladosu will test his credentials as a budding light welterweight star against Sikiru “Omo Iya Eleja” Shogbesan.

The best boxer at the event will go home with a cash prize of N1.5 million and the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy.
