Wilson Masamba in Zimbabwe for preparations


Malawi Defence Force (MDF) authorities finally cleared local featherweight champion Wilson Masamba to undergo intensive training in Zimbabwe ahead of the ‘Knockout Malaria Malawi’ bill.

Masamba will face Brazilian boxer Cid Edson Bispo Riberio for the vacant World Boxing Union (WBU) belt in the main fight on September 26.

The soldier will link up with compatriot Charles Misanjo at Zimbabwe’s Delta Force Boxing Academy Masamba, in an interview on Sunday, said he was glad that MDF officials had released him.


“It shows that my bosses are wishing me and the entire nation well. My reputation is at stake so is the pride of the nation,” he said.

This is not the first time for Masamba to camp in Zimbabwe having trained there two months ago.

“I know the facilities are quite impressive and the conditions are also good. It’s good that I will be training using good facilities to enhance my chances of doing well,” he said.


Masamba arrived in Zimbabwe on Monday and immediately started his preparations.

No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions managing director, Craig Rousseau, said they were partnering international counterparts to make the bill exciting and equip local boxers to win titles.

“The international camp will empower our boxers with special techniques to give out the best,” he said.

After the Zimbabwe training, both Masamba and Misanjo are also expected to travel to South Africa after Rousseau established ties with BRB Boxing Gym owned by Manny Fernandis.
