Portable beats Charles Okocha in celebrity boxing bout
Nigerian music star, Habeeb Badmus, aka Portable emerged the winner of the celebrity boxing fight against Nollywood actor Charles Okocha.
The bout, which was sponsored by Heritage Boxing Entertainment, held at Landmark Beach in Victoria Island, Lagos State, kicked off past 1am and lasted for about 40 minutes on Wednesday.
Portable, who was dressed in blue shorts, took the lead early with a bold start sending several jabs to the body of Okocha, who was wearing a red top and red shorts.
Okocha was back in the game in the second round, avoiding blows from Portable and even knocking down Portable briefly.
In round three, Portable seized some opportunities to return the blows he received from Okocha in the second round and avoided getting hit by Okocha.
In the fourth round, the two celebrity boxers were tired, but Portable was still throwing some direct punches, which caught Okocha unaware.
Meanwhile, when the referee called for Round Five to decide the winner, both of them refused to continue, and this led to the eventual announcement of Portable as the winner.
Although Portable did not win through TKO or KO, the judges adjudged him winner having thrown most punches.
However, the duo had finally settled their scores with their fists after Portable alleged contractual issues, which led them to engage in an online feud over an alleged N40m rip-off.
Portable claimed Okocha cheated him out of the money, only sending him a small amount, contrary to a contractual agreement.
