Bolatito “Tito” Oluwole, at the just concluded GOtv Boxing Night 29, beat Celina Agwu to claim the National Cruiserweight Championship following an eight-round unanimous decision.

The event held at the Molade Okoya – Thomas Indoor Sports Hall, Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Sunday and had many boxing fans cheering her to victory as she courageously pummeled her opponent.

Tito, as she is fondly called by fans, had begun the bout on a good nite, delivering some hard punches, to garner some valuable points at the beginning of the fight.

She would suffer a slight setback when dislocated her right arm in the third round, but she got back after ringside doctor cleared her to continue and never looked back in beating her opponent.

An elated Tito said she was aiming for a technical knockout but after the slight dislocation she had to reorganise her thoughts and game plan.

“I’m happy for the victory, I am long overdue for this, I look forward to many bouts and hopefully to compete for the World Boxing Federation(WBF) Cruiserweight title one day.

“I want to thank my family for their support and especially GOtv and Flykite for giving me the platform to showcase my talents,” Tito said.

Tito would go on to win the Mojisola Ogunsanya Best Boxer of the Night Award which goes for a N1 million purse.
