National and West African welterweight champion, Taiwo Olowu (14-1-0) of Nigeria, will be making a bid to claim the belt of current WBO Africa welterweight champion, Charles Shinima (14-0-0) of Namibia.
The two fighters will meet in arguably one of the biggest fights in Africa in 2022 on October 29 in Windhoek, Namibia.
Olowu will be challenging the undefeated Shinima for the WBO Africa welterweight title in a fight that promises to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
It is also a historical fight for both the Nigerian and Namibian professional boxing scenes.
Olowu, who fights under Nigeria’s leading boxing promotional company, Saleh Gloves Promotions, is highly motivated for the fight, especially after Shinima who recently stated “he was going to take Olowu down when they meet in the ring.”
Shinima is ranked top 100 in the World boxing rankings, so should Olowu pull off an upset, it will result in a big jump up the rankings for the African champion and grant him a better economic appeal moving forward.
Olowu would need to be at the top of his game to avoid making the Namibian’s predictions come true and make the Nigerian boxing fans proud.
