“We are raising the standard much higher this time, a few things we overlooked in the maiden season will no longer be handled with levity hence we have called on the boxers, coaches, and umpires to be at their best within and outside the ring”

Hon. Omonlei who initiated the first of it kind boxing league in Nigeria in 2023, further stated that the increase in the prize money from 20 million to 50 million naira in season 2 is to significantly impact the financial state of the boxing clubs.

“It should also interest you to note, that fourteen (14) different states and cities will be hosting the bouts this time, and I make bold to say that the very positive feedback we have gotten from the accredited venues is an indication that the states are truly prepared to touch their communities through boxing”
