Maemu plans to bring Fuzile's fans to tears

By Bongani Magasela | Oct 06, 2016 | COMMENTS [ 1 ]

East London boxing fans will shed tears the day Rofhiwa "War Child" Maemu dethrones newly crowned SA featherweight champion Azinga "Golden Boy" Fuzile, warned Gauteng boxing trainer Alan Toweel jnr yesterday.

Toweel trains Maemu.

"We will definitely challenge Azinga after we have handled business with Tello Dithebe tomorrow night, and I am telling you now that Azinga's reign will come to an end," warned Toweel.


"Fans in East London will cry when we dethrone Azinga."

Maemu will oppose "King Razor" Dithebe for a vacant WBF International title.

Toweel knows Fuzile too well. The trainer was in the corner when Fuzile beat Tumelo Pedi in East London last year.

"Azinga has not changed that much since that fight," said Toweel.

"I watched him beat Mabhuti Sinyabi and in my opinion Sinyabi is not the same fighter he was before. He was too hesitant.

"But first things first, let us handle the business with Dithebe and take it from there."

Fuzile's win will have a positive spin-off for Maemu, who will automatically be placed at the top of next month's ratings.

That position will put him in line to challenge Fuzile, although the newly crowned champion will still enjoy his voluntary status, which means he can chose any of the top 10 contenders before making his mandatory defence against the No 1 contender.

Fuzile ended Sinyabi's reign at the iconic Orient Theatre last Friday night.

That impressive victory - only Fuzile's fifth from as many professional boxing matches - turned the 20-year-old scholar from Duncan Village into an overnight sensation.

Fuzile was the No 1 contender going into that bout, with Maemu breathing down his neck in second spot.

In the meantime, Maemu will have to get past No 6 contender Dithebe.

The bout will form part of the three-championship tournament to be staged by promoter Lebo Mahoko at Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein tomorrow night.

In the main bout Nkululeko "Bulldog" Mhlongo will defend his SA junior middleweight belt against France "Fighting Time" Ramabolu, while female WBF International bantamweight holder Matshidiso "Nomeva" Mokebisi will defend against Melisa Miller.

The fights form part of the Macufe Festival.
