The exhibition boxing match which is tagged “Rhumbles in Lagos,” will hold on May 25 at the Eko Atlantic City, will be beamed live to the world.

Tinubu who endorsed the BAT vs Holyfield bout, said, “I can’t wait to knock Evander down. I’m the real champion of the world!’’

The project manager, Foluke Michael, said this is a private sector-initiated event designed as a contribution to the 50th anniversary celebration of the creation of Lagos State.

According to Michael, “Significantly, it is aimed at bringing world attention to some health-related issues in Africa, and will focus on cases such as Autism in Children, Breast Cancer, Mental Illness and HIV/AIDS and River Blindness.”
