Teen Sensation Hollie Towl set to Challenge For Featherweight Championship

British teen sensation Hollie Towl is set to challenge for the featherweight championship on Saturday, September 4th at the Hilton Brighton Metropole.

Towl will face off against Nigerian Abosede Obisanya for the WIBA Youth World Championship for this Historic Professional Boxing Event in Brighton.

The former Five-Time, Three Division English Amateur National Champion and currently unbeaten professional Hollie Towl will face off against unbeaten 19-year-old Nigerian Abosede Obisanya for her first Pro Boxing Championship honour.

They will face off for the Women’s International Boxing Association (WIBA) Featherweight Youth World Title.

After making her professional debut last year on the same day in 2020, Hollie had her pro debut on the ‘’Let Battle Commence Boxing Show’’ held in Aberdeen. Winning the bout by TKO in the fifth round against Jamie Bates.

Nigerian Obisanya currently holds a 3-0-1 record, winning all her fights by KO/TKO and drawing against fellow Nigerian Oyindamola Ayodele.

Towl, will be the youngest fighter to compete for a professional boxing title coming from the United Kingdom. If she were to come out with the victory on September the 4th, she could equal or top the current modern era’s youngest World Champion Devin Haney’s phenomenal championship achievements.

Haney won the World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth World Championship in March of 2017 at the age of 18 years old with a TKO victory over Mexico’s Maximino Toala. He then went on to win the full world title at the age of 20 years old.
