A Nigerian, Elizabeth Oshoba, has entered history books as the first female boxer in the country’s sporting sector to secure a world title.
The Nigerian boxer achieved this remarkable feat in the women’s featherweight category.
Heritage Times HT reports that with this, the dazzling athlete has added another significant accomplishment to her already impressive career.
In a thrilling display of skill and determination, Oshoba secured her World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Female featherweight title by delivering a knockout punch to Italy’s Michela Braga in the 10th round of their bout.
This victory extends Oshoba’s undefeated professional record to 7-0, showcasing her prowess and dominance in the boxing ring.
This achievement follows her notable win in November 2023 when the 24-year-old boxer defeated Italy’s Martina Righi in Swindon, England, claiming the International Boxing Organization (IBO) International title.
