INTERNATIONAL Boxing Organisation super featherweight champion Jackson “Action” Asiku is set to make his first defense against Mexican Jhonny Gonzalez on September 15.

“Action” Jackson Asiku (26-3, 14 KOs) has soared to the top of the boxing world thanks his exciting style and an unyielding will to win.

A former Olympian, Asiku based in Australia is looking forward to win the fight.

In his ten-year professional career, he has won 15 straight fights, the IBO title last November with an eighth round knockout of Heriberto Ruiz, and he’s looking to score another big win over the hard fighting the 28-year old Gonzalez.

The pride of Mexico City, Gonzalez (45-7, 39 KOs) has won a place in the heart of all fight fans with his knockout power, and nearly five years after winning the WBO bantamweight title, he looks to be better than ever.

A devastating puncher with both hands, Gonzalez has won five in a row, all by knockout, with only one opponent making it past the second round.

Asiku, became the fifth Ugandan boxer to become a world champion.

He joined the class that also has Ayub Kalule, Cornelius Boza Edwards, John “The Beast” Mugabi and Kassim “The Dream” Ouma.
