Shafik Kiwanuka meets his Congolese opponent Tyson Mbikayi for the first time this morning.

This will be in a joint press conference in Bukasa at 10am. The fight is set for tomorrow night at the MTN Arena.

Mbikayi arrived this morning from his Lusaka base confident of pulling of shocking Kiwanuka.

“Everything is set. Expect a good show of both the main event and undercard fi ghts,” promised organisers Great Strikers International.

The conference will be followed by a general weigh in at the fight venue. Kiwanuka was confident yesterday.

“I can’t wait for the first gong. I have never felt fi tter. I am set to knock out another opponent.”

Kiwanuka got off to a flying start in his professional career in March with a first round knockout of Kenyan David Oduor.

Great Strikers chairman Sam Buchanan says they want Kiwanuka’s next fight to be in September.

This is part of a grand plan to have him challenge the world title within three years.
