Former Lagos state governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was absent from the Rhumbles in Lagos event which he was billed to fight former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.
The Jagaban vs Holyfield exhibition match which was hugely anticipated did not happen as the Asiwaju was absent, probably out of fear of being knocked-out by Holyfield, a four time former boxing heavyweight champion.
The event held at the Landmark event center in Oniru featured two exhibition matches, performances from various artistes including the legendary Femi Kuti who took aim at Tinubu.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode who spoke after Kuti's performance informed the awaiting crowd that the Jagaban would be unavailable to fight as he had national issues to attend.
Ambode asked if he could take the position of the Jagaban, but offer was rejected by the crowd. The governor then went on to present gifts to Holyfield and thanked him for donating $3million worth of equipment to the state.
