On December 26 at the Tafawa Balewa Square on Lagos Island in Lagos, Nigeria, undefeated local star Taiwo Agbaje will face Filipino veteran Richard Taruc Pumicpic for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Featherweight title.

30-year-old Agbaje, 14-0 (9), has been around since turning pro in 2018, fighting in Ghana and the United Kingdom, besides his native Nigeria. Earlier this year he won the West African Boxing Union title, stopping Ghanaian Emmanuel Quartey in four rounds.

Nicknamed “The Beast”, Pumicpic (32) is even more experienced, and certainly more accomplished so far, going abroad for fights in Thailand, Japan, Mexico and the USA.

A pro since 2008, he is a former Philippines, WBC Youth Silver, WBC International and WBO Asia Pacific titlist, and brings a record of 23-12-3 (7).

Arguably the best opponent to date for Agbaje, the man from Manila is a very live underdog in the fight, and if the styles mesh as expected it is bound to be a very exciting encounter.

Promoted by Flykite Promotions, the fight will be broadcast live by GOtv.
