Tanzanian boxer vows to end Agbaje’s invincibility


Tanzanian boxer, Twalib Tuwa, has vowed to end the unbeaten run of London-based Nigerian boxer and World Boxing Federation Intercontinental featherweight champion, Taiwo “Esepor” Agbaje when they clash at GOtv Boxing Night 28.

The contest is one of the seven bouts lined up at the boxing showpiece scheduled for the Molade Okoya-Thomas Indoor Sports Hall of Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos May 1.

Speaking from his training base in Tanzania, Tuwa said Esepor’s unbeaten status was because he was yet to face a lion like him.

“I fight like a lion in the ring. I don’t hold back. I have heard of Esepor’s record. I am more experienced than him and I will end his record May 1,” he said.

Tuwa has a record of 37 bouts with 25 wins, nine losses and three draws, with 17 of his victories via knockout.

Meanwhile, Agbaje, who is ranked 39th in the world by the WBF, has also bragged that he will eat up Tuwa like the popular Nigerian meal, ‘Tuwo.’

The Nigerian is undefeated in his 15 bouts, including two in the UK, winning eight via knockouts.

In the other bouts of the night, cruiserweight boxers, Demiji Salami, and Samuel Elegbede will slug it out in a six-round national super middleweight challenge bout; lightweight boxers, Emmanuel Abimbola and Prince “Lion” Nwoye will face each other; Dolapo Omole battles Gbolahan Mojeed in an eight-round featherweight bout; Steven “Freeman”
Kadima will face Godwin Ambrose in a national challenge duel; Samuel “Apata Roro” Moses and Michael Adeshodun will pummel each other, while Azeez Ayobami “Latest” will engage Tosin Osaigbovo in an eight-round national lightweight challenge bout.
