Alaafin Of Oyo Fights For Boxing Title- The Vanguard by HungerBAD: 2:32am On Oct 15, 2016
By Ola Ajayi, Ibadan

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, an ex-boxer of repute, who retired from boxing after his enthronement in 1970, has dusted his boxing gloves and will, today, mount the ring to take on his opponent at Oyo Township Stadium.

The fight is the peak of a nine-day event lined up to mark the 78th birthday of Oba Adeyemi. When Saturday Vanguard contacted one of the participants, who is the Vice President of Nigerian Boxing Managers Association, Isiaka Olatunji, he said a boxing belt will be presented to the winner of the bout between Alaafin and his opponent.

A United States based ex-boxer, Mojeed Okedara was said to have presented the belt to the monarch as a gift for his birthday. But the reputable king, who still has boxing blood flowing in his veins, reportedly said he would prefer fighting for the belt. His response yielded fruits and the bout is slated for today. Right from that day, Alaafin has reportedly been training hard to overcome his opponent on the ring.

According to Olatunji, “His imperial majesty, Alaafin has been training hard everyday for the bout. I’m sure with level of his training, he is ready for the title fight. At the preliminary stages of the events, many boxers from Oyo, Edo. Delta, Osun . Kwara, Ogun, Lagos, Ekiti and Ondo states had featured and engaged one another in competitive and energy-sapping bouts. Before pugilist Alaafin mounts the ring today, a final match will come up between two other contenders. The fight holds at 11am today.

Oba Alajidewe,

Toje pipele lo tun npele si.
Kabiesi, Oba toto bi aro.

He will surely not die, or his opponent will turn to ABOBAKU automatically.
