Okonkwo Battles Adeleye For First Ever Junior ITF Title

Prosper Okonkwo is just one win away from winning his first ever Junior ITF title when he plays against Daniel Adeleye in the J30 Abuja boys’ final.

The 15-year-old teenager is playing in his second ever J30 final after losing to Seun Ogunsakin in the J30 Abuja event a few months ago.

After a nervy match against Jeremiah Benjamin in the quarterfinal, Okonkwo battled Ezekiel Azi in the semis and rightly earned his place in the event’s finale.
