West African light welterweight champion, Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, has boasted about knocking Ghanaian boxer, Raphael “Iron King” Kwabena King out in their rematch.

He was defensive throughout our last fight. I have watched the fight again and I have seen what needs to be done to counter his defensive strategy and knock him out. He has strength in abundance, but he fights only one way, which I have figured out. It will be a knockout,” Fijabi boasted.

Following Kwabena King's challenge for a rematch on December 26, 2016, Fijabi has said that the Ghanaian will encounter a different boxer from the one he met at their first bout.
