Crack Filipino boxer, Richard Taruc Pumicpic, and London-based crack Nigerian boxer, Taiwo “Esepor Agbaje, will arrive today for their 26 December World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental featherweight title showdown slated for GOtv Boxing Night 27.
Their arrival was confirmed in a statement by Flykite Productions, organisers of the show. According to Flykite, both boxers will arrive Lagos from Manilla and London respectively at 2.05pm.
The WBF title clash is the biggest of the six bouts scheduled for the show billed to take place at Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
The yet undefeated Esepor, a knockout specialist, will be facing an opponent with a similar record at the event that will be a fusion of boxing and music, which will see live musical performances by Ruger, Pheelz, 9ice, Chinko Ekun and DJ Xclusive.
Another potentially eye-catching bout is all-female middleweight clash between Sofiat Lateef and Abosede Akinsanya.
