Madziwana dares champ Kakololo

Harare –Zimbabwean boxer Tinashe Madziwana is coming out of a two-year break from the ring and his first port of call is a match with Africa Boxing Union featherweight champion Nathaniel Kakololo of Namibia. 

Madziwana had taken a break from boxing in 2018, and then the COVID-19 pandemic put paid to his comeback bid last year as several scheduled fights had to be removed from the calendar.

Now he has received confirmation of a title shot against Kakololo in a bout scheduled for Windhoek next month. Namibia’s Salute Boxing Academy is promoting the fight. 

But is this not a case of biting off more than he can chew? After all, Madziwana has not tasted action in two years and he is up against the ABU featherweight champion.

Furthermore, he is awaiting a special waiver from authorities in Zimbabwe to resume training as boxing is among sports that have been put on ice in the country because of the pandemic.

An unfazed Madziwana says, "I have gone for close to two years without a fight. But, I have always been ready and for me to challenge for this title means I believe in myself. I know boxing is a tough sport and I am ready for the challenge. We have since applied for a waiver to be allowed back at training. I hope I will have enough time to prepare for this big fight."
