Nigerian Tony Salam vows to punish World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Cruiserweight Champion Chamunorwa “Sting” Gonorenda from Zimbabwe when they meet in a rematch on October 26 at the Federal Palace in Lagos.
Gonorenda, 12-12 (7), won their first fight, on August 31 in Zimbabwe, by hotly disputed split decision, and this time Salam, 11-2 (6), will have the home-court advantage when he gets a second chance to show he is the better man and deserves to be the WBF All Africa title-holder.
“I clearly won the first fight”, Salam recently told Kwesé ESPN. “Gonorenda knows it, the Zimbabwean crowd knows it, and the millions who watched on TV across Africa knows it.”
“It is now personal. Gonorenda is going to pay, and this injustice will finally be resolved. I am not risking letting the judges decide my faith again, Gonorenda is being put to sleep.”
“Chaos in Lagos” will be promoted by Kalakoda Promotions, and broadcast to more than fifty million potential viewers by Kwesé Sports as well as various sublicense agreements across the Africa continent. A live stream will also be available on YouTube.
