In the past week Reid’s team have said they had “come up with a strategy that we feel will exploit the weaknesses that we have identified in his [Olusegun’s] game” and Reid elaborated further today when he said:
“I will do my talking in the ring but I have been practicing my body punches. I plan to break him down with body punches”
“Tomorrow we will see,” the smiling, and still unbeaten Olusegun said.
Friday’s principal support bout sees the return of the sublime Tshifhiwa Munyai, the Commonwealth bantamweight champion who weighed in at 125 lbs to Harry Ramogoadi’s 126.
