Oboh who was also the WBA International boxing champion made it clear that “whether boxing fans like it or not, one of the prized fighters must add another defeat to his boxing record. We must not forget both fighters have just one blemish each in their careers.

“Both fighters are world champions and very hard punchers and both British and that makes it more interesting.”

Oboh, who holds dual citizenship as both Nigerian and British said, “this will be the most difficult fight for any pundit to predict. As for me, my mind is for Joshua while my head is for Fury, while my whole body is for England because the UK is making history again.”

Note, this will be the biggest pay per view fight ever among two British boxers in the history of the UK boxing. It will even surpass Lenox Lewis vs Frank Bruno big showdown over two decades ago. Believe it or not England remains the winner because both fighters are her citizens.”

Talk about the huge financial reward both fighters will take home, win or lose, plus the money the British government will make from the fight then one would safely conclude that England will be the winner, says the ex-boxing champion.
