Mike Tyson Of Nigeria KO’s Opponent In One Round, Wants Bigger Fights
A heavyweight knockout artist is being dubbed by his fans as the new Mike Tyson.
U.S.-based Nigerian boxer Onoriode “Godzilla” Ehwarieme is a 6-ft-7 heavyweight KO artist with 17 wins and only one defeat. In his 17 wins, 16 came by way of knockout.
This made it easy for his fans to compare him to Tyson, the original “Baddest Man on the Planet.”
Apparently, they believe that the Nigerian has what it takes to rule the world as Tyson did during his glory days.
Ehwarieme started his boxing career in 2003. Nurtured with advice and help from one Efe Okitikpe, the native of Oghara in Delta State punched his way up to the top and now holds the WBF International heavyweight title.
In an interview with The Guardian, Ehwarieme revealed that his kickboxing background has significantly helped him win fights in pro boxing.
After securing his first title, Ehwarieme is now looking forward to a bigger challenge in his career. Shortly after the victory against Ariel Esteban Bracamonte, the Nigerian boxer stated that his ambition was to contest for a world title in the United States or in any other country very soon.
