Boxing: Oshoba thrilled after hard-fought win

Elizabeth Oshoba, a featherweight boxer, and Oluwatosin Kejawa, a super-middleweight fighter, are both thrilled to have qualified for the Commonwealth title battles, according to The PUNCH. At York Hall in London, United Kingdom, Oshoba defeated Kirsty Hill by a score of 58-56 to raise her professional record to (4-0-0-3KOs). Last Saturday, Kejawa defeated Ukrainian Serhii Ksendzov in a super-middleweight contest that lasted six rounds and was decided on points, 60-54. I feel so happy that I was able to win the bout and qualify for the Commonwealth battles and I thank God for giving me the victory, Oshoba stated in a statement to The PUNCH.

While in the training camp, I truly geared myself for the battle and offered everything I had. The schedule has not yet been revealed, but the 23-year-old is now looking forward to the title matches. I'm excited to compete for the titles, and Oshoba mentioned that I want to keep winning and enhance my record in order to win the crown and inspire everyone. Kejawa promised to keep winning on his end. I'm happy with the victory because I knew my opponent was going to be a strong opponent, so I trained hard for the fight. The goal right now is to keep winning and win the Commonwealth fights; I know it would be challenging, but I'll keep working out and putting my faith in God, Kejawa told The PUNCH. Oshoba and Kejawa both fight under Prosperity Sports Managements in the United Kingdom.
