Away from football, one of Zimbabwe’s finest sports personalities, boxer Charles Manyuchi, took to the ring in Italy, to defend his WBC title against Gianculla Frezza.

It took Manyuchi 6 rounds to dismiss his Italian opponent. Manyuchi who admitted it had been his toughest bout yet, show tremendous character in a hostile environment against a seasoned boxer. So good was Manyuchi’s performance, he managed to convert a section of the Italian support in his favour.

Team Zimbabwe UK director Marshall Gore along with other fellow compatriots from the UK, in a show of true patriotism, made the trip to Italy to support Manyuchi. Questioned about the support after the bout, Manyuchi thanked his fellow countrymen for having come out to support him.

Manyuchi is expected to receive a hero’s welcome on his return home. He, along with his trainers, promoters and fans, await to hear what lies ahead for the Champion but on his showing in Italy, the future looks very bright.
