David Adeleye tells story of meeting Eminem in Riyadh




Although David Adeleye ‘s match versus Fabio Wardley did not go in his favor, he still had a positive experience on his journey to Saudi Arabia.

In the seventh round of his rematch with Wardley, Adeleye was knocked out on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou late last month.

Adeleye’s first loss in his professional boxing career will undoubtedly be difficult to accept, but he did get to meet some of his heroes while in Saudi Arabia for the highly anticipated tournament.

“On my table, I was sitting alongside my commercial agent, I had Amir Khan on my left and I had Eminem sitting across from me. They told me Eminem was on my table and they’d done the seating arrangements so we would be across from each other and I was like ‘What?!’ David Adeleye told to talkSPORT.

Then he continued: “There’s a boxing game that’s coming out on PSP and I was playing it with him, it was humbling. He was giving me words of encouragement the day before the fight and can you imagine what is was like? There were big musicians there who I like listening to giving me words of encouragement.”
