Jabbo Okeleke becomes a successful Dambe fighter in his own right while making himself a cut above other boxers. This is also a riveting story that provides a contemporary portrait of a Nigerian fighter, who knows what he wants in life: to become an undisputed boxing champion.

As Jabbo Okeleke endeavours to achieve his goals in boxing, in all his glory, he has nothing to lose or hide, as he is confronted with ugly African myths, half-truths, and a slew of talented Dambe boxers.

This off-beat novel is all about boxing grit, resilience, and determination — that is, when it comes to Dambe boxing, while deepening our understanding of Jabbo Okeleke’s tireless boxing journey.

Finally, Jabbo Okeleke, with his personal challenges and experiences, takes on humankind, in general, as a fledgling Dambe fighter, as his opponents feel the great, tangible power of his dextrous hands and fists.
