The boxers arrived Murtala Mohammed International Airport on Friday, September 30, 2016.

While Raphael Kwabena aka Iron King is scheduled to exchange fists with Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi Richard Amefu aka Desert Warrior, is set to take on Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph on Sunday, October 2, 2016.

Speaking on arrival, the Amefu said they are in the country to show that Ghana is better than Nigeria at boxing.

The two countries are said to be rivals in sports, but that is not true. Ghana is superior and what we are here to do is to beat your champions and reinforce our country’s supremacy in Africa, not just West Africa. It will be Ghana all the way. Mark my words,” Amefu bragged to the delight of his compatriot.”
