Also billed to fight is the African Boxing Union welterweight champion and crowd favourite, Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, who will square up against Kazeem “Iberu” Ariyo in a national challenge duel.

The cruiserweight division will feature Idowu “ID Cabasa” Okusote against Michael “Lion Heart” Godwin, while Prince “Lion” Nwoye will take on Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola in a lightweight challenge duel. The light welterweight category will see Vincent “Dada” Essien test his mettle against Segun “Showboy” Olalehin. There will also be a heavyweight clash between Daniel “Big Shark” Emeka and Sulaimon “Olags” Adeosun.
