Boza was born in May 1956, and grew up in Uganda when it was under the rule of Idi Amin, one of the most bloodthirsty tyrants to ever plague the African continent.
Boza was able to leave Uganda and make his way to London, where he turned pro under the tutelage of veteran British Promoter-Manager Mickey Duff.
In their August 1981 fight, Boza was on top initially, but then sustained a bad cut, and apparently felt he had to finish the fight quickly.

In his first defense, he lost it by a decision to Uganda's Cornelius Boza Edwards, who, in turn, defended his title against Chacon on his first defense.
In between, he and Boza Edwards met for a second time, with his world title on the line, in what Ring Magazine called the fight of the year for 1983.

Edwards came to the attention of most fans when he fought Alexis Arguello in a non-title bout and did well enough in that fight to earn a title shot at Bazooka Limon.
The fight with Limon and the next fight with Bobby Chacon for Edwards newly won crown were classics.
These two wars took a lot out of Edwards however and he suffered a upset loss to Rolando Navarett in his very next defense.

But Pacheco should have known that this was Bobby Chacon, who would rather take a sword through the eyeball than have a fight stopped due to a cut.
Chacon and Boza-Edwards first fought two years earlier, when Boza stopped the aging “Schoolboy” in the 13th round in what appeared to be Chacon’s swansong.
Boza was down three times, Chacon down once, and there was enough blood in between to make Pacheco panic.

AFTER getting a firsthand account of Manny Pacquiao’s workouts at the Wild Card Gym, ex-WBC super-featherweight champ Cornelius Boza-Edwards echoed what many Filipinos already know: “Pacman” is one hell of a fighter.
He’s got that terrific handspeed of a southpaw,” he further said of Pacquiao, who is on the tail end of an intense two-month workout session under Roach before he takes on Mexican Erik Morales in a blockbuster superfight on March 19 (March 20 in RP) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“He’s also a strong, sharp puncher, and definitely much, much quicker than Navarette,” said Edwards, who lost his WBC crown in 1981 after suffering a terrible beating at the hands of Navarette, who was an unknown fighter at the time.
