OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls that the bout had taken place at the expansive sport complex of Ilaji Resort, Oloyo Village, Akanran.

According to Makinde, “Boxing has always been a treasured sport. I also believe that more world champions are going to be produced in Oyo State. This administration did not just decide to renovate Lekan Salami Stadium. We believe that it will be an avenue to bring up talents, give exposure to our youths. When I was campaigning, I did say then that youth restiveness needs to be tackled and sports is one of the vehicles we can utilise to do that.

“This is to show that if, as a youth, you are able to come up with your talent and follow it and we, as a government, are able to give you the necessary support, you can go places in the world.

“I visited Ilaji Resort before my election and I want to appreciate my brother, Engineer Dotun Sanusi, for his commitment to both sport and business in Oyo State and I can give you the assurance that the state government, under my watch, will continue to partner with you.
