Adeleke is just coming to watch. He should watch as much as he can before the fight begins, otherwise he’d have lost the opportunity because I will daze him like he’s never been dazed before,” he said.The Lagos-born boxer, who caught the eye at GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 3 but was not selected because he was a year too young, explained that he has been undergoing rigorous training and following dietary instructions to ensure that he is in premium condition for the fight, which is one of the eight scheduled to hold at the event.All eyes will, however, be on the headline bout, which will see African Boxing Union (ABU) lightweight champion, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, defend his title against the very dangerous Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, West African Boxing Union (WABU) champion. The bout, which has been dubbed “Fight of the Decade”, is the peak of the rivalry between the two boxers since their amateur days.Both remain undefeated and are ranked as the best in the division. Other big names slated for action are Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, WABU welterweight champion; Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola, national super featherweight champion; Adewale “Masevex” Masebinu, national light heavyweight champion; Kabiru “KB Godson Towolawi; former national light heavyweight champion; and Tope “TP Rock” Musa.The event will also stage an all-female duel, with Cynthia “Bobby Girl” Ogunsemilore take on Aminat “Smart” Yekini in a super featherweight challenge bout.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Highly rated bantamweight boxer, Opeyemi “Sense Adeyemi”, has boasted that he will be the next national champion in his weight division after his fight with Sadiq Adeleke at GOtv Boxing Night 20, which holds on 12 October at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.The 19-year old, who was voted best boxer at GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 4, has described himself as a “big deal,” the reason he has remained undefeated since turning professional.In a telephone chat yesterday, Adeyemi said his opponent is coming to the venue for sightseeing, as he has no chance of winning.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Trevor Cooney attempted 230 3-pointers and Jim Boeheim thinks that Syracuse was, for the most part, playing the right odds.“Last year, he really had to take some shots that were not quality shots. But he had to take them,” Boeheim said at ACC Basketball Media Day on Wednesday. “I wanted him to take them because he had the best chance, his percentage of the bad shots were better than some of the other guys who were shooting about 17 percent.”As the Orange plans to base its offense on 3s this coming season, Boeheim expects a slight tweak in Cooney’s role. He said the fifth-year senior — SU’s leading returning scorer who averaged 13.4 points per game last season — still has the same green light, but that he’d like Cooney to take out the 40 or 50 “bad shots” he took last season. Boeheim thinks that could bump Cooney’s 3-point percentage — 30.9 last season — up seven or eight points and, in turn, improve the offense considerably.“I definitely think I, personally, can only benefit from us having more shooters this year,” Cooney said earlier in the day. “The shots I am going to take are going to be better and the whole floor will be opened up for everybody to make more things happen.”Boeheim said Cooney was one of two reliable perimeter options last season, which led teams to press up on him and force him into contested shots at times. Cooney said Wednesday he hopes opponents play him the same way because this year’s team is better equipped to capitalize on it. Boeheim counted five or six capable shooters on his team, which could include any of Cooney, Michael Gbinije, Malachi Richardson, Kaleb Joseph, Tyler Lydon and Frank Howard.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse expects to take as many as 25-to-30 3s a game in the coming season, with the attempts spread out to a deeper pool of shooters. That will probably cut into Cooney’s 230 tries, but he see that as a positive change.“I think it allow me to score more honestly,” Cooney said. “That may sound funny, but if I’m taking less shots but the quality of the shots is higher, then I’ll be in really good shape with the rest of the offense.” Comments Published on October 28, 2015 at 6:23 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesselast_img read more
