The first female boxer to win the Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy at GOtv Boxing Night, Bolatito “Black Tito” Oluwole, has boasted that her aim is to retain the trophy at the 30th edition of the boxing showpiece, on December 26.
Her national cruiserweight challenge fight against Blessing Abisoye, is one of the six bouts scheduled for the event, at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Victoria Island, Lagos.
She won the trophy as the best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 29, after defeating Celina ‘Pretty Assassin’ Agwu, via a unanimous decision, to win the national female cruiserweight title.
