Ace comedy act, Ali Baba has dared British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua to a boxing duel. Ali Baba, a 52-year-old prince of Agbarha Otor, in Delta state, seems persuaded his bones are stronger and has vowed to knock fists with the youthful world champion, Anthony Joshua.
In a hilarious post on Instagram, Ali Baba advertised himself as a match for Joshua, the currently unified world heavyweight champion and holder of IBF, WBA, IBO titles. Ali Baba also is not want of titles as he parades, among many, ‘Special Marshal’ of the Federal Road Safety Corps.
Ali Baba said: “I’m not even playing again… some should tell Anthony Joshua… I’m coming for that belt. Since no one wants to challenge him again. What nonsense?!!! Nobody should beg me. Bringing that belt home like Wakanda.”
As proof of his seriousness, Ali Baba showed off his six packs. Despite warnings from some Instagram followers about his ‘suicidal mission’, Ali Baba was unfazed.
“David defeated Goliath,” he told a follower.
