Lateef Olalalekin Kayode (born March 3, 1983 in Lagos, Nigeria) . Kayode knocked outAmerican Edward Charles Perry on a Showtime boxing card.[4] Kayode showed a much more relaxed demeanor in the ring than in his previous ShoBox appearances. In the 6th round he perfectly placed a right hand down the pipe that connected on the left side of Perry’s jaw, sending him sprawling to the ground once more. Perry had never touched the canvas in 13 years as a professional pugilistboxer.[5]

On June 10, 2011, Kayode proved too much for a game Matt Godfrey, then 19-3 with 14 KOs, at the Chumash Resort Casino. Kayode controlled the entire fight and sent Godfrey to the canvas a total of three times, eventually winning by scores of 98-90, 97-90, 98-89. He knocked Godfrey to the floor in rounds one, five and nine with a devastating display of body shots and power punches to the head of Godfrey
