Amb. George Oguntade, Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, has reportedly agreed to Larry ‘The Natural’ Ekundayo, into the ring for his world Welterweight title fight in London on 13th of July.
Ekundayo, who is due to return to the ring against Scotland’s John Thain, was said to be thrilled by the development.
In a statement on Friday, Khomeini Bukhari, a member of ‘Team Ekundayo’ and boxing enthusiast, said that a VVIP ticket to the fight has been presented to Oguntade at the Nigerian High Commission in London.
He said: “During the fight in London, I will also be joining the Nigerian High Commissioner to lead Ekundayo into the ring during which I would be holding the ‘Asiwaju flag’ as a show of appreciation to the philanthropist.”
