Jenkins Alumona, Managing Director of Flykite Promotions, organisers of GOtv Boxing Night, explained why GOtv Boxing is in partnership with the Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame (LBHF) for the 76th Monthly Saturday Boxing Show.

Speaking in Lagos on Monday, Alumona said: “GOtv Boxing is into professional boxing. But there is no professional cadre without the amateur cadre. The LBHF, through the Monthly Saturday Boxing Show, has been developing talents that we hope will become professionals and make this country proud. We always talk about the need for grassroots development in any sport. The perfect example of that is the Monthly Saturday Boxing Show. What GOtv Boxing set out to do is the revival of boxing in Nigeria. Part of that revival is what the monthly boxing show does.

Speaking ahead of the 76th edition of the show holding on August 30, 2016 at the Mobolaji Johnson Sports Centre (Rowe Park) in Lagos, Wale Edun, Chairman of the Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame, said the aim of the monthly show is to discover kid boxers that could be carefully nurtured through exposure to the rudiments of competition.
