Super welterweight boxer, Taiwo “Gentle Boy” Olowu, has said his target is to claim the West African Boxing Union (WABU) super welterweight title at GOtv Boxing Night 30.
The enterprising boxer, who is the national welterweight title holder, will square up against top Ghanaian boxer, Michael Ansah, at the event slated for the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos Island, on December 26.
Speaking ahead of the fight, ‘Gentle Boy’ boasted that he would ensure the Ghanaian return to his country empty-handed. “I aim to add this West African Boxing Union title to my national title.

Ansah will leave Nigeria empty-handed,” he said.
