World-famous Mayweather to fight Speaker House of Representatives, June 14

Undefeated champion and five-division boxing titleholder, Floyd Mayweather Jr, is billed to fight the Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on June 14.

Mayweather, who currently works as a boxing promoter in his company, The Money Team, will arrive Nigeria on June 12. His visit to Africa’s most populated nation has been termed historic visit by organisers, Zzini Media Concept.

Telling the media about the bout, Donatus Okonkwo, chairman of Tettrazzini Group of Companies, the parent company for Zzini Media concept, said the bout is for charity.

He said the bout is one of the events scheduled for the champion during his tour of Africa.

“Floyd is coming to sub-Saharan Africa for the first time and he is starting in Nigeria,” Okonkwo said.

“He’d arrive on the 12th of June barely eight days from today, he would be around for four days and three nights” he added.

Okonkwo revealed that the boxer, who won 26 of his total 49 undefeated bouts by knockouts, will visit Lagos, Abuja, Akwa Ibom and Anambra during his visit.

“We are happy to tell you that Mayweather will be engaging Dogara in a charity bout to be staged in Abuja,” the lead promoter for the Mayweather visit revealed.

He added that the Speaker has already assured the organisers that he would be present for the bout because it is a charity event.

The bout is billed to hold at the Transcorp Hotel, Abuja.
