Lagos fans were thrilled by the amazing boxing prowess of deaf and dumb pugilist, Gbobaniyi Segun at the just concluded One-Day Boxing Clinic held over the weekend.
The event which was put together by Undefeated Nigerian boxer, Gifted Cole Chiori at the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) field in Festac City saw the instant fan favourite Segun win his fight 3-0 to place third in the overall standing.
Omole ‘Machine’ Kolapo was named the best boxer at the event and picked a cash prize of N300, 000 while Tosin Omoyele earned N200, 000 for his second place finish and Gbobaniyi Segun, who was deaf and dumb, picked the third prize which was a N100, 000.
“I am happy to contribute my quota to the development of boxing in Nigeria. It was difficult for me while growing up in Ajegunle. Fighting in the street. That alone is a motivation for me to help the young boxers,” Chiori explained.
“Now I’m out of the street, making money through boxing. It’s important to encourage the young boxers and help them achieve their objectives in life.
“That is why we have decided to organise this event, to give back to the society, discover as well as groom future champions that will represent the country in future.”
There were six exhibition bouts before the 15 main bouts which saw boxers showcase their talents to Lagos fans.
