Former boxing champion, Bash Ali boxer, has slammed the Lagos State Government for the invitation to American former World Heavyweight boxing champion, Evander Holyfield for an exhibition-boxing bout in Lagos State.

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had as part of the 50th year anniversary of the creation of Lagos State invited Holyfield, a five-time World Cruiserweight and Heavyweight boxing champion, for a scheduled boxing match with a former governor of the state, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Nigerian boxing legend, lamented on his Facebook page that he would have been invited for the boxing showcase instead of the American because of his contribution to the economy of Lagos and Nigeria.
He wrote;
Quote
“I was born and raised in Lagos. I am a world boxing champion, I have contributed to the economic growth of Nigeria through sport and I was rewarded with the highest national honour ever given to a Nigerian athlete, Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON).
American former world boxing champion, Evander Holyfield is in Lagos as a special guest of the government to celebrate Lagos at 50 and I am not invited. The labour of our heroes past shall never be in vain…lol,” .

Please lets not have this debate, Bash Ali is great in his own right, but it is very disrespectful to be speaking of Evander Holyfield in that light, I mean, come on!!!!! This man is a heavyweight hall-of-famer, 3 times world champion, what has Bash Ali done aside having run-ins with Solomon Dalung and constitute a nuisance? He only fought at cruiser-weight level, which no one cares about and won some short-lived WBA belt or something and he expects the whole Nation to stand still for that!!!?Huh? Samuel Peter has had way better accomplishments than Bash Ali but I dont see him shouting and screaming- up and down like someone without relatives, Abeggiiii this man's children should come and carry him mehnn,,, he is disgracing the family anyhow
