Adewunmi Ogunsanya has added another N1million to the cash prize for the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 11, holding on Sunday, March 26, at the Liberty Stadium Ibadan.
This means that the best boxer at the event will go home with N2million in additional to the Mojisola Ogunsanya memorial trophy, donated by Mr. Ogunsanya in memory of his wife.
According to Flykite Productions, organisers of the event, Ogunsanya is providing additional N1million as a continuation of his support for the sport and in commemoration of the second anniversary of his wife who died on March 22, 2014.
Previous winners of the award went home with N1million each, except the winner of the award at two December editions.
The fight line-up comprises seven huge bouts, including the West African Boxing Union lightweight title defence by Nigeria’s Oto “Joe Boy” against Ghana’s Anma Dotse.
Another major fight on the night will see national and West African light welterweight champion, Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, take on Sunday Yao in a challenge encounter.
An equally big-name pairing will see Sule “Tyson” Olagbade, national light middleweight champion, test his mettle against Wahab “Hammer” Adebisi, the man he dethroned.
