Osborne “Big Daddy” Machimana - Former SA Heavyweight Champ On Comeback
Osborne “Big Daddy” Machimana
Former SA Heavyweight Champ On ComebackTonight we see Soviet sponsored Osborne “Big Daddy” Machimana, taking on Mudimba Muanza in his comeback fight for the charity event Dubbed "Fighting for the Angels"
Machimana last fought in November 2013 when he was outpointed over 10 rounds by South Africa-based Zimbabwean Elvis Moyo for the WBF Africa title in Cape Town.
Machimana said he needed to win to be back in Boxing SA’s ratings and to enhance his chances of reclaiming the title.
“It is a must win fight for me,” Machimana said yesterday. “Mudimba is a closed book and that is a bit of a worry.”
Machimana is coming back, looking fitter and meaner, weighing in at 116kg - thanks to manager Kathy Deftereos, personal trainer Fabrizio Clarizio and boxing trainer Michele Castellan.
Machimana steps into the ring tonight to face Cape Town based Congolese Mudimba at Hellenic Hall in Germiston.
Machimana stated “Credit must also go to Glen Kriek, who has organised a job for me with retail clothing label Soviet, who is also my sponsor.”
From all of us at Soviet we wish Osborne Machimana the best tonight!
The fight takes place 24th July 2015, 18h00 for 18h30
Germiston Hellenic Hall
