Enosoregbe, a former winner of the tournament, told our correspondent on Wednesday morning, that he would try to stay within distance of striking his opponent to win the grudge match.
Although Moses is seen as a fighter on the court, Enosoregbe’s experience having represented Nigeria at the All Africa Games and won gold medal in tennis with longtime friend, Onyeka Mbanu, will come in handy at the Kano tournament.
“All I can say is that I will do my best to win the match,” Enosoregbe said.
“I guess it’s like a final match to him, so I’ll have to be careful because he is also a really good player on his day,” the 2016 Governor’s Cup quarter-finalist added.

The championship will end this weekend where the winners of the men and women’s singles would be presented with their trophies.
