Why Sterling Bank supported Evander Holyfield, Tinubu’s fight
Sterling Bank Plc said it supported the star boxing match between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu versus Evander Holyfield, former World Heavy Boxing Champion because it is a bank that cares and promotes culture.
Chief Marketing Officer, Brand Management & Communications, Mr. Henry Bassey, stated this at Rhumbles in Lagos organised by Afinju Concept International Entertainment (ACI) to celebrate the two leading champions in their own rights as part of activities lined up for the celebration of Lagos @50.
According to Bassey, Sterling Bank as a bank that cares with the primary purpose of enriching lives is constantly focusing on meeting its customers’ needs.
In a keynote address, Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode commended Holyfield and his wife for coming to grace the celebration of Lagos@50, adding that Holyfield is also interested in promoting the youth clinic with the objective of seeing new boxing champions emerging from Lagos state.
He said that the state was committed to partnering with Holyfield’s Real Deal Foundation to promote sports and youth empowerment in the state.
Ambode said as part of the partnership, Holyfield has donated sporting equipment worth $3 million to the state.
