Dar boxers lined up for non-title content

TANZANIA’s professional Bantamweight boxer, Nassib Ramadhan, has what it takes to command a convincing win over fellow domestic boxer, Francis Miyeyusho in a non-title bout in Dar es Salaam at the end of this month, the former’s coach, Godfrey Mzazi, has disclosed.

The fight, which will be held at the National Indoor Stadium, will be one of several high profile fights organised by prominent domestic promoter, Kaike Siraju.

“I have prepared Ramadhan well for the fight and he will surprise boxing fans in the country, come the day,” Mzazi said.

“He has not taken part in any bout in the country for a long spells, therefore, fans should come out in numbers to see his displays.”

Ramadhan’s previous fight against Miyeyusho, a Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) Inter-Continental Bantamweight title bout at the PTA venue in Dar es Salaam on June 9 2012, saw the latter command a Technical Knockout (TKO) win.

Ramadhan’s record currently stands at 18 wins (nine knockouts), eight losses (two knockouts) and a draw.

Boxrec, a network that holds records of professional boxers from all over the world, has positioned him third in the list of 41 boxers in the Super Bantamweight division.

The network has also rated Ramadhan 225th out of 1,173 boxers in the division in the world.
In his previous bout, Ramadhan took on Namibian, Emmanuel Naidjala in the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Inter-Continental Bantamweight title fight in Windhoek on December 5 last year and the Namibian won by unanimous decision.

Mzazi also said Ramadhan is expected to face a Kenyan opponent in an international, non-title bout later this year and the former has requested domestic promoters to volunteer to organize the bout in Tanzania.
Miyeyusho, who has moved up to the Featherweight division, has won 40 fights (23 knockouts), lost 14 (11 knockouts) and recorded draw in two fights.

Miyeyusho’s previous bout saw him take on Gotblieb Ndokosho in an international, non-title fight held in Outapi, Namibia on November 28 last year, in which Ndokosho won by unanimous decision.

Miyeyusho is now the leading professional Featherweight boxer in the list of 65 boxers in Tanzania, as per the Boxrec ratings.

The network has rated the boxer 185th out of 1394 boxers in the same division in the world.
