The 22 year-old heavyweight prize fighter will face Iranian Sayed Abbas Nassab in a World Boxing Federation (WBF) Africa title shoot due June 28 at Lugogo Indoor Stadium.
“I just cannot wait to get in there and get things going on Friday night. I am ready for whatever Nassab brings on Friday night,” Odeke told ChimpSport Wednesday noon.
“I am looking to take him out him because it will be on his debut so this can be nothing but a great win for me,” he added.
The Iranian is expected in Uganda by press time (12:00noon) and was booked on an Egyptian Airways flight. He will be accommodated at Hotel African one of the sponsors.
Odeke’s three fights have lasted only seven rounds, knocking out Kenyans James Omollo and Joseph Ayeko together with Tanzanian Suleiman Ashraf.
