Nigeria’s reigning boxing champion,
The millionaire boxer, who is billed to fight Ahmed for the vacant African Boxing Union (ABU) lightweight title, has vowed to demolish his opponent when they clash at GOtv Boxing Night 13 on December 26, 2017 at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“I know he is his country’s champion and also holds the Mediterranean title, but I will beat him to pulp. In the Bible, Joseph became big in Egypt. In Lagos, I will become big by winning the ABU title. I will do Nigeria proud. The Egyptian you will see that day, you will see no more after,” Joe Boy said.
