Nigeria’s Larry ‘The Natural’ Ekundayo successfully defended his International Boxing Federation (IBF) European title at York Hall, London.
Ekundayo, who represented Nigeria at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, beat the previously undefeated Briton Louis Greene by an unanimous decision with scores from the judges standing at 100-89, 98-91, and 99-90.
The 36-year-old welterweight thanked everyone that came to support him on Friday night saying, “Gratitude is my attitude! I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that came out to support me last night, that tuned in on
Boxnation, online and all the well wishes. Special thanks to my team. Big thank you to all my sponsors, massive love for the amazing support last night.”
Louis Greene, while gracious in defeat, said on Facebook post-fight: “Everyone who watched I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the support it wasn’t my night, I’ll be back, all the best to Larry, what a gent with a real heartwarming story behind his career, thanks again for all the support now to rest with my wife and children love you all.”
