In his interview ahead of the fight, Ogunyaju said Iwatt will get the hit of a proper fight on May Day. “He was lucky to be the champion. I heard that his initial opponent for that fight pulled out. I am going to give him a proper fight. This one will be tougher than his title fight,” he said.
Also scheduled for the boxing showpiece is a 10-round West African Boxing Union (WABU) light welterweight title clash between Segun “War” Adeyemi and Adeyemi “Spirit” Adekanla.
