. . . Baby Face KOs Ghana’s Quick Action

Abiodun ‘Infiniti’ Afinni, at the weekend, emerged the national cruiserweight champion by defeating Michael ‘Emirate’ Godwin by split decision at GOtv Boxing Night 24.

His performance at the show, which held at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, won him the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy for the best boxer and the N1 million cash prize attached.

Afinni won a little more than the title and cash prize. His defeat of Godwin was a revenge for his own loss to the same opponent at GOtv Boxing Night 23.

The seven-bout event, which featured live musical performance by Jamopyper, also saw Nigeria’s Rilwan ‘Baby Face’ Babatunde retain his World Boxing Federation international welterweight title by defeating Justice ‘Qwick Action’ of Ghana by unanimous decision.

In the third title fight on the night, Segun ‘Success’ Olanrewaju, made light work of David ‘Awosika’ Cosmos, whom he knocked out in the second round of their national lightweight title bout.

In the welterweight division, Segun ‘War’ Adeyemi knocked out William ‘Kaki’ Amosun in the first round, while Semiu ‘Jagaban’ Olapade triumphed over Taiwo ‘Gentle Boy’ Olowu.

The bantamweight bout went the way of Aminu ‘Lucky Boy’ Akintayo, who defeated Saheed ‘The Eagle’ Azeez. (Guardian NG)
