Little known national lightweight boxer, Emmanuel Abimbola, Monday, emerged as the best boxer at the GOtv Boxing Night 28 to win the sum of N1 million cash prize attached to the Mojisola Memorial Ogunsanya Trophy.

The young dreadlocked boxer won the trophy, seeing off the challenge of more famous names like Taiwo “Esepor” Agbaje, rated 39th in the world by the World Boxing Federation (IBF); Michael Adesodun and Stephen “Freeman” Kadima.

Abimbola was deemed the most impressive performer by journalists at the event, following his clinical defeat of the tough Prince “Lion” Nwoye at the seven-bout event, which was held at the Molade Okoya Indoor Sports Hall, Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

On the same night, Agbaje, the reigning WBF Intercontinental featherweight champion, defeated his Tanzanian opponent, Twalib Tuwa. True to his reputation as a knockout specialist, the volume-punching Agbaje stopped Tuwa in the third round.
