Ojuederie Pulls Out Of Owoh Showdown - Boyle Steps Up to The Plate On March 5th
The highly anticipated Cruiserweight clash between Toks Owoh and JJ Ojuederie, at the Steve Goodwin promoted ‘Unleash The Fury’ super show at London’s York Hall on Saturday 5th March 2011, is off following Ojuederie pulling out, due to an injury sustained in training.
Stepping up to the plate, to replace the injured Ojuederie, is # 13 ranked Billy ‘The People’s Poet’ Boyle from Sheffield.
Former Paratrooper Boyle, who in 2009 unsuccessfully challenged Light Heavyweight supremo Nathan Cleverly for his Commonwealth crown, is likely to prove an even sterner test for the returning former World # 3 ranked and IBF Super Middleweight Inter-Continental title challenger from Chalk Farm.
On receiving the news that his replacement opponent for the 5th March is Billy Boyle a Toks said, “I don’t really know too much about Billy Boyle. I can say I have been around way before this guy.
I see his tape, I see the way he box and I’m just going to go in there and do what I know best, that’s boxing.
If it happens I take him out, I take him out, but the only thing I know to do best is to box. I’ve been doing that for twenty years now.
It’s gonna be a good fight.”
