Flykite Productions, promoters of GOtv Boxing Night, have announced plans to make the fifth edition, holding on 26 December, a family-friendly one.
According to Jenkins Alumona, Flykite Managing Director/CEO, this edition is aimed at giving families fun during the Yuletide holidays.
Alumona called on parents to come to the National Stadium in Lagos, venue of the event, with their children, who are assured of being given a wide variety of gifts.
“The season calls for giving. We are committed to that. It is why we are inviting parents to let their kids be part of the fun and get gifts. We assure them of security in and around the venue. We are proud to say security has always been good at every edition. It is not going to be different this time. Every kid at the venue will get gifts for Christmas. Parents who come early are also assured of gifts,” Alumona said.
GOtv Boxing Night V will feature three title fights and one national challenge duel. The biggest will be between national and West African Boxing Union Featherweight champion, Waidi “Skoro” Usman taking on Uganda’s Edward “Shaka” Kakembo for the African Boxing Union Featherweight title.
Also lined up is Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, who will take on reigning national Welterweight champion, Sadiq “Police Fighting Machine” Ahmed.
The third title fight will see Stanley “Edo Boy” Eribo attempt to win the National Light Welterweight title by taking on Sunday “Capo” Olalekan.
