National Wrestling Alliance of Nigeria, NWAN, heavyweight champion, Innocent ‘Superking’ Okoroji, has vowed to give a good account of himself at the forthcoming Comrade Adams Oshiomole International Wrestling Championship slated for the last week of this month.
The Abia State-born wrestler, who has weathered the storm by competing in many states of the federation, said that he is prepared to showcase his talent at the tourney.
“For the fact that I hail from Abia does not mean that I can not showcase my talent in Benin City. I am not scared of anybody because I am a heavyweight champion and title holder. I see past achievements as a plus for me during the tourney.
“I am ready for both the home and foreign-based wrestlers, who will participate in the tournament. My aim is to be among the four wrestlers that will win belts and trophies at the tournament” Superking boasted.
Meanwhile, Chris “Bambi Killer” Raaber of Austria, who will lead the legion of foreign wrestlers to the international championship, has said that his team will give their host tough time at the tourney.
Raaber’s team to the championship will include Michael Kovac from Hong kong, Danijel Singh from India, Dynamite Solution from USA, Highflyers Chad Collyer of USA, Ridvan Farag from Kuwait, Frankie Sloan from Greece, Da Mack and Axel Dieter Jr. from Germany.
Meanwhile, speaking from their home countries, two female wrestlers, Shanna from Portugal and GI Francis from France, have promised to teach African female wrestlers the basics of women professional wrestling during the tournament in Benin.
