Middleweight contender Charles Manyuchi of Zimbabwe will take on Uganda’s Muhamad Sebyala Saturday, April 4, at the Harare International Conference Centre.
Manyuchi holds the minor WBF middleweight title, which will be on the line. During a press conference in Harare, Manyuchi said, “I am more than ready for the fight. I have been training for past three months and recently went into camp to polish up and I am almost ready. I am only doing some final touches here and there. I am fit and raring to go and have no weight problems this time as I have already shed excess weight.
“The belt will remain here in Zimbabwe. My weight is a challenge, I am in great shape and would like to warn the Ugandan that he will be entering a lion’s den and should come thoroughly prepared to be beaten.”
Asked about the questionable choice of his last few opponents, Manyuchi said he was just a boxer and the boxing bodies sanction matches.
“I am just a boxer. I do not choose the opponents, it is the sanctioning boxing bodies whether WBF, GBU, ABU, WBO Africa who sanction the fights and titles. There are people called matchmakers who are involved in the selection process, my job is to fight and make sure that I win and that is what I do best. There was a time I was down but not out, I’m now back to my best.”
