Flykite Productions, organisers of GOtv Boxing Night, have promised adequate security in and around the Indoor Sports Hall of the Liberty Stadium, Ibadan, venue of the 11th edition of the event holding on 26 March.
Speaking in Lagos yesterday, Mr. Jenkins Alumona, Managing Director of Flykite Productions, said arrangements have been concluded to ensure adequate protection of fans coming to the event.
“There is nothing to fear. We have always ensured that fans and their properties are safe in around the venue. Since 2014, when the event began, we have not had a single breach. One of our partners is the leading private security firm in the country. The firm has a lot of experience in handling big events of this nature. We seize this opportunity to tell fans that they will watch top class boxing in a safe and secure environment,” said Alumona.
Alumona added that GOtv Boxing Night is being held outside Lagos because there is a need for other states to enjoy what Lagosians have been enjoying since the event began.
“Ibadan, as you know, has a long association with boxing and it is the base of the legend, Dele Jonathan. Part of the history was created by the late Chief Francis Aiyegbeni, who was a strong supporter and promoter of the sport. Ibadan’s association with boxing sure must count for something,” explained Alumona.
