‘Herculeez’ Baits ‘The Lion’
Fadipe calls out the champ on Twitter
07 February 2014
Johannesburg (South Africa) - Yesterday it was announced that Henry ‘Herculeez’ Fadipe, the Nigerian born Irishman, will face welterweight champion Dino ‘The Lion’ Bagattin for his belt on May 01.
Along with the announcement Bagattin put out a video, saying “he [Fadipe] is coming into the Lion’s den, when I’m finished with him he won’t be coming back to Africa.”
It didn’t take long for Fadipe to respond, first changing his Twitter profile picture to one of a lion sporting a black eye [above], then posting a comment of his own:
“Seems like this oke has forgotten he still needs to fight me,” replied Bagattin, then added: “This is the difference… I stay hungry!”
