Fast-rising boxer, Dennis “The Range” Mba, has declared that he will stun Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, West African Boxing Union (WABU) welterweight champion, when they clash in a national welterweight challenge at the maiden GOtv Boxing Night Mini on November 16.

The bout is one of the five fights scheduled to take place at the Rowe Park Sports Complex at Yaba, Lagos.

Speaking in an interview yesterday, Mba, who acknowledged that his more illustrious opponent might be considered by some fans as the favourite, said he was well primed to create an upset that would catch the current sub-regional champion and boxing enthusiasts off guard.

“I respect ‘Babyface’ for being the West African champion, but he will be roundly shocked by the time I am done with him in the ring. He barely survived his last fight and thanks to his last opponent (Eden Biki), I now know his weakest point. So, I will just ramp up my punches hard to make sure he is dazed by the time I knock him out,” he boasted.
