Greg Cohen Promotions inks Lateef ‘Power’ Kayode; Nigerian slugger will now campaign as heavyweight

Greg Cohen Promotions has inked undefeated puncher Lateef “Power” Kayode (18-0, 14 KOs) to a promotional contract. Cohen also announced that Kayode will now move up in weight and begin campaigning in the heavyweight division. 30-year-old Kayode, from Lagos, Nigeria, originally, is trained by the legendary Freddie Roach and will be looking to make an immediate splash in his new division. He was last seen fighting to a draw with former world champion Antonio Tarver in June of last year. Cohen has previously worked with Nigerian heavyweights Samuel Peter and Ike Ibeabuchi.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
