A 16-year-old, Raheem ‘Badoo’ Animashaun, has turned heads at the just-concluded GOtv Boxing Night 31, where he famously emerged as the "Best Boxer of the championship."

The 16-year-old boxing prodigy showcased exceptional skills to the admiration of the judges and audience with his thrilling performance at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

During his fights, Animashaun recorded a fourth-round technical knockout win over the more experienced Samuel ‘Apata Roro’ Moses in their national light welterweight challenge bout to claim the N1 million rated Mojisola Ogunsanya Memorial Trophy.

The teenage boxer displayed feints, weaves, and fast, furious punching, dominating his more fancied opponent from the first round of the encounter.

He knocked down his opponent twice before ending the fight in the fourth round. The announcement of his name as the winner of the best boxer award was met with rapturous applause.

Animashaun is the son of Jamiu ‘Rotor’ Animashaun, a former professional boxer who fought in the first two editions of GOtv Boxing Night.

Also, on the night, Segun ‘War’ Adeyemi defeated Adeyemi ‘Spirit’ Adekanla via a majority decision to win the West African Boxing Union light welterweight title. Adewale ‘Playboy’ Oladeji sealed a unanimous decision win over Afikun ‘Ijebu’ Gbenga in their super welterweight encounter. The national flyweight challenge bout between Sikiru ‘Isho’ Ogunyaju and the current national flyweight champion Sifon Ogunbumi ‘Best’ Iwatt ended in a draw.

The national light welterweight challenge fight between Hammed ‘Eshe’ Ganiyu and Yusuf ‘Hungry Lion’ was declared a no-contest after Ganiyu sustained an injury in the second round from a head-butt by his opponent. Emmanuel ‘Ability’ Abimbola earned a split decision win over Azeez ‘Latest’ Ayobami in a national lightweight challenge fight, while the national super featherweight challenge duel between Sikiru ‘Omo Iya Eleja’ Shogbesan and Bartholomew ‘Aboy’ Abuchi ended in favor of Shogbesan, who won via a technical knockout.
