LOCAL boxing promotion company, Big Strikers International is in final stages of taking on Zimbabwean fighter Farai Musiiwa.
Emmanuel Mwesigwa, a director in the company, revealed yesterday that they were impressed by Musiiwaâ€™s recent show against African champion Badru Lusambya and had decided to enlist him in their stable.
â€œMusiiwa was also impressed by our management and expressed intentions of joining us,â€ explained Mwesigwa.
Big Strikersâ€™ part of the deal includes availing Musiiwa with a title fight.
â€œTalks were finalised. All that remains is for Musiiwa to study our contract and sign,â€ said Mwesigwa.
Mwesigwa explained that the deal had received the consent of Musiiwaâ€™s manager Boris Znieder.
If the deal finally goes through, Musiiwa will have his main fights in Kampala. Musiiwa gave Lusambya a run for his money but the homeboy triumphed with an eighth round knockout at Nakivubo.
Ugandan champion Festus Omondi is the other fighter in Big Strikersâ€™ stable. Omondi returns to the ring on March 5 at Sabrinas Pub.
This will be an African championship tune-up.
