Stella last saw Femi on Saturday afternoon before he left his home with two friends.

She claims her son was stabbed last year by two lads who had been targeting him for months.

And she believes it was the same group that attacked her son on Saturday.

She added: “These two boys have had issues with my son. They stabbed him last year.

"I want them found and arrested for what they’ve done.”

Promising boxer Femi, who trained at the All Stars Boxing Gym in West London, had just returned from a month long training camp in Dublin.

Stella added: “He loved boxing. He wanted to be professional. He would train twice a week, and every Saturday.

"His coach told him to stay home and out of trouble.”

In social media posts the gym described him as “explosive” and a “promising heavyweight” star.

It is the latest violent incident on London's streets, with the capital gripped by a terrifying rise in knife and gun crime.

Police imposed emergency stop and search powers in the area as they combed it for evidence.

Both victims were taken to central London hospitals.

Omosuyi remains in a critical condition, while a second victim, a 25-year-old man, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
