Jagaban vs Holyfield cancelled but, Femi Kuti steals the show at Rhumbles in Lagos

Former Lagos state governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was absent from the Rhumbles in Lagos event which he was billed to fight former world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.

The Jagaban vs Holyfield exhibition match which was hugely anticipated did not happen as the Asiwaju was absent, probably out of fear of being knocked-out by Holyfield, a four time former boxing heavyweight champion.

The event held at the Landmark event center in Oniru featured two exhibition matches, performances from various artistes including the legendary Femi Kuti who took aim at Tinubu.
