NewsNigeriaSportPhenomenal beating: Portable lands heavy punches on Charles Okocha to win boxing match

…Okocha cries foul, seeks rematch

Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, who goes by the stage name Portable, is the winner of a boxing match staged between him and Nollywood actor Charles Okocha.

Videos of the ring fight that has gone viral on social media showed Portable, in blue, pouncing on Okocha, in red, who tried to block the heavy punches but with little apparent success.

The fight was staged to let the duo settle a score.

Portable called out Okocha in November, accusing the actor of refusing to give him his full settlement after a deal they had. According to the singer, they were paid N40 million to get N20 million each.

The actor, in his defence, denied ripping Portable off. He said he made the singer part of the deal because he “wanted to help a brother”, and after the payment was made, he sent the singer N5 million.

After weeks of virtual squabble, both men resolved to iron their differences in a ring fight.

The boxing match took place at the Landmark beach in Lagos on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Okocha rejected the results of the boxing match which favoured Portable. He accused officials of manipulating the results.

“You all know this was rigged, with an incompetent referee who knows nothing about boxing rules. Nevertheless, we move on. Rematch coming soon.
