AFRICA Heavyweight Wrestling Champion, Osita Offor, also known as De Ultimate Commander, will this evening at the sports hall of the National Stadium, Surulere, battle United States of America’s Shelton Benjamin in a championship also featuring 13 mats men from the USA and their Nigerian counterparts.

Benjamin, who is the UPWF Heavyweight champion, is also reputed to be the fastest rising wrestler in America. The heavily built Benjamin and his 12 compatriots, on arrival in Nigeria on Wednesday told The Guardian that they were in the country to test the might of the local wrestlers, adding that this championship would help them to gauge the standard of the sport in Nigeria.

According to Benjamin, “I am the best youngman in the sport right now and if anybody feels he is better than me then he should step into the ring to prove it. I came to Nigeria because I have heard so much about Commander and I want to show that there is still nobody better than me. There is only one gold standard and that is Benjamin Shelton.”

Rising to the challenge, Ultimate Commander, who returned to Nigeria on Thursday after spending three months training in America, said: “ I would present Benjamin to Nigerians as a Christmas gift.

“Wrestling is a sport that is measured by what one does in the ring. I am the Africa champion but my desire is to be the world champion. To achieve this, I cannot allow Benjamin or pretenders like him stand on my way. I promise to shave off his hairs tomorrow (today) to show that I am the best,” he boasted.

Among other American wrestlers in Nigeria for the championship are the tag team duo of Barbarian and Warlord (Powers of Pain), Tatanka Jeff Lewis, Jake, Mike Mondo, Neal Jefferson Furman, Stephen, Brendli, and the tallest woman in wrestling, Lindsay Hayward, who will slug it out with Treneshas Biggers.
The Nigerian wrestlers in the championship are Jimmy Palm, Lion Man, the Executioner, and Mr. Peace, among others.

The championship, according to the organizers, the Ultimate Wrestling and Charity Organisation (TUWCO) would be spiced with comedy and music presented by notable artists including J. Martins, Aki and Pawpaw, Tee Mac, John Ogah, Niggaraw, Joe Glizzed, MC Loph, Obejizo and Leo Mezie.

Expected to grace the championship are former Information Minister, Dora Akunyili, Senator Ike Nwachukwu, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, Chief Alex Akinyele, Chief S.N Okeke, and representatives of the Lagos and Abia states government, among others.
