This follows a substantive sponsorship agreement reached between the Nigeria Wrestling Federation (NWF) and the popular Yenagoa-based Baraza Multipurpose Co-operative Society.
As part of the terms of the agreement, Baraza have decided to, a large extent, bankroll the tournament, hence, the change of name.
Every other aspect of the 4-day tournament remains sacrosanct.
The 3-time World Championships medalist won her 6th continental title in February, 2020 at the African Championships in Algiers.
Fireworks are also expected from 5-time African Champion Mercy Genesis in the 50kg weight class also on Day 1 of competition on Saturday.
In the Freestyle event, all eyes would be on 4-time African champion Emmanuel Ogbonna when he takes to the mat in the 74kg class. The Akure-based energetic wrestler claimed a fourth consecutive African title in Algiers nearly a year ago the last time he competed.
In the meantime, the NWF have secured a state-of-the-art timing system, which will be used for the first time at the Baraza Champion of Champions tournament when competition gets underway on Saturday.
