In the last few months, Oladosu with 10-0 record, had openly challenged Joseph twice, claiming that he defeated the ABU title holder during their amateur days.

In a chat with on Monday, Joe Boy (16-0), who successfully defended his title against Ghana’s Success ‘Brave Warrior’ Tetteh at GOtv Boxing Night 18 in Ibadan in April, said Oladosu should be ready for war.

“Yes the fight has been approved by ABU and the preparation in going smoothly.

“How did he beat me? We were both in the camp for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, why didn’t he represent Nigeria. I knocked him out at the Commonwealth camp, he has never beaten me.

“I defeated him at the Governor’s Belt, beat him at the qualifiers for Lagos State Sports Festival. I defeated him to represent the state at Eko 2012.

“He should stop deceiving people all around. I have defeated him before and I will still do that at the next edition of the Gotv Boxing Night. It’s going to be war on that day, he should be ready,” Joe Boy told SportingLife.
