Zimbabwean trainer, Clyde Musonda, says Malawian duo Wilson Masamba and Charles Misanjo have improved tremendously since they started camping at Delta Force Boxing Academy in Harare ahead of the ‘Knockout Malaria’ bill set for September 26.
In the main fight, Masamba will face Brazilian Cid Edson Ribeiro in a World Boxing Union (WBU) title fight while Misanjo will take on Moabi Mothina of Botswana for the World Professional Boxing Federation (WPBF) welterweight belt.
Musonda, speaking in a telephone interview, said both Masamba and Misanjo had finished the first phase of the programme which concentrated on their fitness and stamina.
“I believe they have improved. The guys are working very hard to win these titles which I believe they will do. By camping in Zimbabwe they have achieved a lot they have improved their confidence because they are also sparring with many boxers,” he said.
Musonda said he was now working on the second phase of the programme which consists of techniques and combinations.
“Come September 26 they will do better to last the rounds and win the titles,” he said.
The Knock Out Malaria bill will be staged at Bingu International Conference Centre and will feature top boxers from 10 countries.
