By Own Correspondent- Charles Manyuchi’s opponent in the Global Boxing Union/Universal Boxing Council Intercontinental super-welterweight unification title bout, Pablo Ezequiel Acosta of Argentina, arrived in the country bubbling with confidence Monday.
Acosta will take on the former WBC silver welterweight champion on May 25 at the Harare International Conference Centre.
“It is my first time to fight in Africa and I hope I will come up with a win. “I have been working hard in the past weeks and I hope it is going to help me.’’
Manyuchi lost his WBC title to Uzbek boxer, Qudratillo Abduqaxorov, in Singapore in March, 2017.
“I am training with Issa and Ali Phiri. It’s called the restoration fight. I had lost but I am trying to come back. This year I am prepared, I want to return to the top.’’
