Anisha Bashir faces Tanzania opponent


Two-belt holder Anisha Bashir returns to the ring on September 27 when facing Tanzanian Happy Daudi in Harare, Zimbabwe.

The eight-round non-title contest comes after Bashir lost a World Boxing Council-Silver to champion Chantelle Cameron last month in the United Kingdom.

The development comes after Bashir parted ways with manager Craig Rousseau of No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions.


Bashir’s trainer, Clyde Musonda, said the Malawian would fight under Charles Manyuchi’s bill as she seeks to bounce back.

“We need to win two fights so that we should get a better rating to attract title fights offers. We know we can do it and we will start with this fight,” he said.

Musonda said a number of promoters had approached them expressing their desire to partner Bashir.


“We are not in a rush to get a new manager or promoter. We will take our time as we concentrate on our performance,” he said.

Bashir, who holds African Boxing Union and Commonwealth super lightweight belts, said facing Daudi would be ideal as she seeks to rediscover her mojo.

“She is an experienced boxer but I need this fight to get back on track. I will work hard to win,” she said.

Bashir, 22, has eight straight knockout wins with six defeats whereas Daudi, 32, has seven wins, including four knockouts with six defeats and a draw.
