By Lawrence Trusida Sport Editor
ZIMBABWEAN Boxing star, Charles Manyuchi continues to scale dizzy heights after being named as the World Alliance Boxing Association Lifetime Goodwill Ambassador.
The pugilist who retained his World Alliance Boxing Association (WABA) supreme middleweight title in Masvingo is receiving the recognition he deserves after getting a golden handshake from President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week.
As if that is not enough, WABA has also recognised the exploits of the boxer not only in the ring but also in promoting young talent.
“This honour is just not for me but for the people of Zimbabwe, I will do my best to promote the sport and also to continue looking for new talent,” said the Boxing Champion Charles Manyuchi.
Manyuchi was given a year to defend his WABA supreme middleweight title, which he won after beating Muhammad Sebyala of Uganda and in the process unified the WABA title, with the World Boxing Federation, Global Boxing Union and Universal Boxing Council belts which he already possessed.
The Manyuchi Academy is home to some of the national champions such as Tinashe Majoni, Tatenda Biningu and Kudakwashe Chivandire who are billed to contest in regional bouts soon.
