Alaafin Of Oyo Returns To Competitive Boxing

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, will mount the ring for a boxing match today!

Oba Adeyemi – an ex-boxer of repute who retired from the sport
after his coronation in 1970 has decided to take on an opponent at Oyo Township Stadium today.


Vanguard reports that the royal bout is the peak of a nine-day event lined up to mark the 78th birthday of Oba Adeyemi, with a belt to be presented to the winner.

According to Isiaka Olatunji, Vice President of Nigerian Boxing Managers Association, the belt was presented as a birthday gift to the Oba by United States based ex-boxer, Mojeed Okedara, but the formidable King said he would prefer fighting for it.

Olatunji further stated that Alaafin has been training hard for the coming fight, as he intends to take the belt home.

“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,” he said.

One may say he doesn’t need much training, what with the backing of the gods. But then, can his opponent really land a punch?.
