The Akarigbo of Remo Land, in Ogun State, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, has called on Nigerians and indigenes of Remo Land to join him in fervent prayers for the success of Anthony Joshua against Oleksandr Usyk on September 25.
Oba Babatunde made the call in a good luck message he sent to Anthony Joshua, a Remo indigene on Thursday.
The monarch noted that it is not a mean feat for anyone to chest out and represent his country.
He stated that it is a huge challenge for Anthony Joshua and his victory would be a great pride for all Nigerians.
Akarigbo prayed in his message that Anthony Joshua would come out triumphant against Usyk.
He noted that “Indubitably, the stake is really high for us all. Therefore moments like this call for every support we can render our own and most importantly since we can not all be at the ringside to cheer up Anthony Joshua, please let us support him in fervent prayer, and by God’s grace, we shall together celebrate another Anthony Joshua’s victory on the 25th September 2021.”
Anthony Joshua would defend his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles against former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
