GOtv Boxing Night 29: ‘Golden Boy’ll Fall Again,” Boasts  Happy Boy



Golden Boy

Fast-rising bantamweight boxer, Sodiq “Happy Boy” Adeleke, has boasted that he will defeat Opeyemi “Golden Boy” Ibrahim a second time when they face each other at GOtv Boxing Night 29. 


The two boxers are scheduled to meet in one of the six bouts scheduled for the premier boxing event at the Molade Okoya-Thomas Indoor Sports Hall of  Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, on September 24.


Happy Boy earned a unanimous decision victory over Golden Boy in December 2023, at GOtv Boxing Night 27.


Speaking from his training base in Lagos, Happy Boy said he is confident of another victory over the familiar foe.

“I know him well. There’s nothing to fear. I know he wants to get revenge, but he will get another defeat. Maybe he thought my victory the last time was a fluke, but I will show him why the three judges gave me the match,” he said.
