GOtv Boxing Night: chair increases prize money






GOtv Boxing Night Chairman,  Mr. Adewunmi Ogunsanya, has increased   the cash prize for the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 11 by N1m.

The event has been   scheduled  to hold at the Liberty Stadium, Ibadan, on Sunday.



The best boxer  will  now  receive  N2m in addition to the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy donated by Ogunsanya in memory of his wife.

According to Flykite Promotions, organisers of GOtv Boxing Night,  Ogunsanya decided to increase the prize money  as part of  his support for the sport and in commemoration of the second anniversary of his  wife’s death. Mrs. Ogunsanya died on March 22, 2014. Previous winners of the award went home with N1m each, except the winner of the award at the December editions.

GOtv Boxing Night 11, which will yield the biggest ever payday in Nigerian boxing history, is the first edition of the event to hold outside Lagos. Sponsored by GOtv, the event is supported by MultiChoice, Federal Inland Revenue Service and will be broadcast live by SuperSport in 47 African countries.


The fight line-up comprises seven 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.
