Wahab to fight on Fury, Usyk undercard

WBO Africa champion, Oluwaseun Wahab, is set to feature on the undercard of the ‘Ring of Fire’ fight night where WBC champion Tyson Fury and unified heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk will meet for their undisputed bout on May 18 in Saudi Arabia.

Wahab will battle the unbeaten British boxer Mark Chamberlain in a 10-round lightweight clash at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh.

The Nigerian boxer holds an impressive record of 23 wins and one loss with 16 of his victories coming via knockouts while the Brit holds an undefeated record of 15 victories and 11 KOs as it promises to be an entertaining clash between both boxers.

Undefeated in Africa, where he has fought in Nigeria and Ghana, his only career loss came when he made his UK debut against Liam Dillon at York Hall, Bethnal Green in London.

Wahab suffered a majority decision loss in the fight. He has since made up for it with an 11th round technical knockout win over Sikiru Shogbesan to defend his title in the main event of the ‘Rumble in Lasgidi’ event in 2023.

The WBO Africa super-featherweight champion will be eager to make it back-to-back wins when he takes to the ring for the star-studded event in Saudi Arabia.
