GOtv Boxing Night 6: Rasheed ‘ll see hell – Ghanaian opponent


Adjei Sowah, the Ghanaian opponent of Abolaji “Afonja Warrior” Rasheed in the forthcoming West African middleweight boxing title duel, has vowed to punch the Nigerian until he starts seeing double in the ring. The encounter, which headlines the sixth edition of GOtv Boxing Night holding on 25 March at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium in Lagos, is viewed by Sowah as an opportunity to avenge the loss of  compatriot Alfred “Ahwor” Quaye to Nigeria’s Waidi “Skoro” Usman at the third edition of the GOtv Boxing Night.Sowah, who spoke from his base in Accra, said: “I’m coming to show the guy who calls himself warrior that he is nothing but a pussy cat. I will avenge the loss of Quaye to Skoro and show the world that Nigeria still trails Ghana in boxing. He calls himself a warrior, but when he sees war in the ring, he will become a pussy cat. I will punch him until he starts seeing double.” The Ghanaian claimed to have been watching the fights of his Nigerian opponent and concluded that he is still way below the standards of his previous opponents, whom he defeated. “Ordinarily, he won’t go beyond three rounds. But I want the fans to enjoy the bout. I will prolong the punishment and punch him sufficiently to make him see double,” he bragged. In the other title fight, Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi will duel with Republic of Benin’s Djamiou Ekekpo for the West African light welterweight title. Also lined up is the national lightweight challenge clash between Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph and Hogan Jimoh Jnr., son of former boxer Hogan Jimoh aka Atomic Bomb. The bearded Hogan Jimoh has vowed to show boxing fans that the Atomic Bomb has returned. Three other fights will have five of the boxers discovered at the GOtv Boxing NextGen Search start their lives as professionals. One of the fights will see Michael “Show Rolland” fight Nwoye “Lion” Prince in a lightweight challenge bout. There will also be two super middleweight bouts. One will be between Saidi “Attacker” Lawal and Samuel “Godspower” Elegbede, while the other will feature Matthew “Wizeman” Obinna against the experienced Yusuf “Koste” Moshood.
