In a bid to mark its 21st anniversary, the Calisto Boxing Club, Lagos, has packaged a tournament for amateur boxers billed to hold on 18 March at Gaskiya College, Ijora, Lagos.
In a chat with Boxing In Focus, the Head Coach of the club, Young Sikiola, promised that the tourney will produce its fair share of fireworks.
“The club will ensure that the event is exciting for both boxers and fans. All our previous tourneys have been great and this edition will not be an exception,” said Sikiola.
Sikiola, a board member of the Nigeria Boxing Board of Control, NBB of C, said that all hands are on deck to prevent hoodlums from formenting trouble at the event.
“We want to assure boxing fans not to exercise any fear over security at the tourney. We will provide adequate security and we have already warned hoodlums and miscreants to stay away from the show,” he said.
