President of the West African Boxing Union (WABU), Mr. Remi Aboderin, has commended GOtv for introducing Boxing Night Mini, a smaller version of the popular Boxing Night.

Speaking in Lagos, Aboderin, who is also the Secretary-General of the Nigerian Boxing Board of Control (NBB of C), said Boxing Night Mini has the potential to take the sport to the next level.

The WABU President stated that Boxing Night Mini, which is conceived to hold more regularly, would offer many more Nigerian boxers the opportunity for fights that will help boost their fight records that will enhance their chances of being ranked for titles by international boxing bodies.

He explained that the infrequency of boxing promotions locally has reduced the chances of boxers getting fights, thereby robbing them of the opportunity to have the number of fights required to take shots at continental, Commonwealth and world titles.

“It is indisputable that GOtv Boxing Night is the most regular platform on which our professional boxers get to fight because it holds every three months or thereabouts. There are other promotions, but they’re not of the same regularity, meaning that it is one for which most boxers aim. But with this, additional fight opportunities have been presented and many more boxers can benefit,” he said.

The inaugural edition of GOtv Boxing Night Mini will hold on 16 November at the Rowe Park Sports Complex in Lagos.

It will feature big-name boxers such as Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, WABU lightweight champion; Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, WABU welterweight champion; Waidi “Skoro” Usman, former African Boxing Union featherweight champion and Kabiru “KB Godson Towolawi.

The WABU boss noted that Ghanaian boxers, who usually have a higher number of fights than their Nigerian counterparts of the same age and profile, have been benefiting from the regularity of promotions in their country.
