It was gathered that Ogunsanya added N1million to the cash prize for the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 11, holding on Sunday at the Liberty Stadium in Ibadan.

To this end, the boxers have been threatening to deal with each other in the ring while other contenders in the night are eyeing the coveted prize and trophy.

Another major fight on the night will see national and West African light welterweight champion, Olaide “Fijaborn” Fijabi, take on Sunday Yao in a challenge encounter.

An equally big-name pairing will see Sule “Tyson” Olagbade, national light middleweight champion, test his mettle against Wahab “Hammer” Adebisi, the man he dethroned.

The best boxer at the event will go home with N2million in additional to the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy, donated by Ogunsanya in memory of his late wife.

According to Flykite Productions, organisers of GOtv Boxing Night, Ogunsanya is providing additional N1million as a continuation of his support for the sport and in commemoration of the second anniversary of his wife’s death.

Previous winners of the award like Olaide Fijabi and Oto Joe Boy had won N1million each, except the winner of the award at two December editions.
