Portable, Charles Okocha trade words ahead HBE Celeb bout

Nigerian street-pop artist, Habeeb Badmus, aka Portable, and Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha, both clashed at their pre-fight conference on Saturday at the Landmark Beach in Vicoria Island, Lagos State.

The singer is set to be at the centre of the ring on December 26 in a Heritage Boxing Entertainment celebrity boxing match with Okocha as the pair look to resolve their contractual issues with their fists.

The two have been engaged in an online feud over an alleged N40m rip-off. Portable claimed that Okocha cheated him out of the money and only sent him a small amount.

This sparked a fight, during which they agreed to settle their differences physically and both scheduled their boxing match for Boxing Day immediately after Christmas with HBE sanctioning the title for the fight.

Both entertainters clashed severally during the press conference exchanging insults and threats as Portable repeatedly told Okocha that the HBE belt was his to clain on Tuesday.

“The belt is mine, I am the owner, I will beat him. This is not about English, I will use punch to beat you,” Portable said.

I am going to take this belt on the 26th and I will take it to Sango and show everyone at home. If you want to start it here, we will start it here, I am ready for you.

Okocha responded promising to knockout the ‘Zazu’ crooner saying, “Bring it on, I am going to knock you out to sleep.

“Too much talk doesn’t fill a basket, when I am ready, we will start. You are ungrateful, I got you a chance and now you are asking for a cheque.”

Potable sprayed thousands of naira to fans after the pre-fight press conference that caused a scramble among those who had gathered to see the singer.

WBC continental champion, Abimbola Osundairo who had trained with Portable believes the 29-year-old has the strength to win.

“It was a serious training that we had. He’s very strong, that’s what most people don’t know, he is very strong and I think he has what it takes to win. He’ll beat Okocha,” Abimbola said.
