Anisha Bashir explains Zimbabwe camp


By Mphatso Malidadi:

Malawi’s top female boxer, Anisha Bashir, has explained why she opted to train in Zimbabwe for her World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver fight against champion Chantelle Cameron set for York Hall in London on June 28.

The fight is also a WBC Final Eliminator to determine the next mandatory challenger for WBC Women’s World Lightweight champion Delfine Persoon later this year.


Bashir said she needed a place where she could concentrate fully on the fight.

“I opted for Zimbabwe because I train better here. I concentrate a lot and the facilities are super. I haven’t seen much of Cameron but, from the little that I know, she is good but she can be stopped,” she said.

The Malawian is the 2018 Malawi Sport Awards Personality of The Year award winner and holds African Boxing Union and Commonwealth super lightweight titles.


“WBC is not an ordinary belt. So, I want to get that belt,” Bashir said.

Bashir’s Zimbabwean trainer, Clyde Musonda, said they have been waiting for the fight.

“I have been studying Anisha’s opponent for some time and we have developed a good game-plan so that we should stop Cameron,” he said.

Cameron, 27, has a perfect record, having won all nine fights, including six knockouts, whereas Bashir, 21, has eight knockout wins with five defeats.

“Great things never come from comfort zones…second day back in camp…already working on new things…so much more to come from me,” Cameroon tweeted ahead of her fight
