It’s Nigeria versus Ghana when Nigeria’s Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu battles Ghana’s Emmanuel “Afuko Addo” Quartey Friday, April 2 on GOtv Boxing Night 22.
The two combatants are engaged in a heated trash talk battle which promises fireworks that day. Speaking from Accra on Monday, Quartey promised a third-round KO when he and “Real One” face off at Mobolaji Johnson Indoor Sports Hall of the Rowe Park Sports Complex, in Lagos.
“This fight is done and dusted,” Quartey declared. “You can take it to the bank. The belt is mine. ‘Real One’ will be knocked out in the third round. He can’t go beyond that. He is not that good and he won the national title here because Nigeria has substandard boxers. He’d never win such in Ghana.”
Oladosu was just as fiery in his response, warning his opponent that it may be him who ends up staring at the lights on fight night.
“Quartey, or is it quarantine that he is called, will see the fire,” said the flashy, and dismissive, Oladosu. “He’s just mouthing off. I’ve beaten many Ghanaian boxers and will beat him too. I’m already looking beyond this fight.”
Only days remain until we find out who will emerge as the victor.
