Godspower Peace Ikpide, the Nigerian National wrestling Heavyweight Champion, popularly known as Mr. Peace ‘Power Lee De Great’, has vowed to defeat Michel Noudem “Le Matraqueur”, his Cameroonian opponent in the upcoming Pro Wrestling Africa (PWA) heavyweight title fight scheduled to hold at the Palais De Sports, Yaoundé, Cameroon on the 19 September, 2015.
After winning the belt, ‘Power Lee De Great’, plans to dedicate the African title belt to mark and commemorate the 24th anniversary of the creation of Delta state on 17 August 1991, which was carved out of the old Bendel State, just as Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is calling on the state indigenes to be more united and committed to the development of the state.
Mr. Peace, who hails from Owhe in Isoko North local government area of Delta State has assured Nigerians that he has what it takes to be crowned the new Pro Wrestling Africa (PWA) Heavyweight champion, if he gets the necessary support from all and sundry.
“I am a Deltan to the core. My father hails from Owhe in Isoko North and my mother is from Olomoro in Isoko South. I have no other business than pro wrestling. I sleep in wrestling, wake in wrestling, eat in wrestling, Pro wrestling is my life and winning the title and dedicating it to my state at her 24 years celebration is my own support to the development of the state”, Power Lee Explained.
He is however soliciting sincere support from the federal government, Delta state government, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Isoko Development Union and other well meaning Nigerians from all walks of life to achieve the feat on 19 September.
He pointed out that the support he needs from the oil rich state would enable him to defend the title within a month of winning it as he needs to prepare himself for the fight that would hold in the French nation of Cameroon, where they would try all possible means to overshadow him if he lacks support from his country home.
“I deserve the support to achieve this glorious aim of clinching the title. I have been the national title holder since December 2010 and have never been defeated since then. If I can win the national title on the 19 December 2010, I can as well win the African title on the 19 September 2015. It means history is about to repeat itself.
“You can say the number 19 seems to be my lucky number. I have done it before and I will do it again”, Power Lee concluded.
