Ayittey Powers pulls out of April 18 bout

The much anticipated April 18 boxing bout

between two arch rivals in the country, Ayite

Powers and Bukom Banku will not come off.

Ayitte Powers says God has communicated to

him through his spiritual father, Nigerian

Prophet, TB Joshua, not to fight on April 18.

"As for me I want to fight," he told Joy FM's

Super Morning Show host Bernard Nasara Saibu,

"but if God says I cannot fight, I will not fight,"

he added. Ayitte Powers recently returned from

Nigeria where he underwent an exorcism at the

Sinagogue Church of All Nations founded by TB Joshua.

He was said to have been delivered of demonic

possessions that have frustrated his boxing career.

But no one foresaw him pulling out of the much

touted, unusually hyped boxing bout which

seemed to hold the potential to breathe some

life into the dormant boxing calendar in the country.

Ayitte Powers obviously shocked many and

disappointed even many more with his decision.

But all is not lost – he says he is prepared to

fight Bukom Banku any other day apart from April 18.

He cannot risk disobeying the wise counsel of

his spiritual father who took his inspiration

from God.

Powers dismissed assertions that he simply

chickened out of the fight because he is afraid

of his opponent.

"I'm not afraid of Banku; I know him and I'm

not afraid of him," he stressed.

He also rejected suggestions that he could be

sued for calling off the bout. The promoters had

previously changed the date for the fight and "I

didn't sue them so why should they sue me"?
