Two World Boxing Federation
(WBF) Championship fights are
set for Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
on Friday November 13, promoted
by Jackson Group Promotions.
In the main event, WBF
Welterweight Champion Hassan
Mwakinyo (17-2, 11 KOs) makes
his first title-defense against
former WBC Latino titlist Jose
Carlos Paz (23-11-1, 13 KOs)
Mwakinyo won the vacant WBF
title in his most recent fight,
this past August, when he
co-challenger Tshibangu Kayembe
from D. R. Congo by unanimous
decision, also in Dar Es Salaam.
In the co-featured bout, former
WBC World Super Bantamweight
Champion Fatuma Zarika (32-13-2,
17 KOs) from Kenya moves up two
weight-classes to take on
Patience Mastara (7-6-3, 2 KOs)
for the vacant WBF Womens World
Super Featherweight crown.
Zarika became WBC World Champion
in 2016, defeating Alicia Ashley
in the USA, and made three
successful defences on home soil
in Nairobi before losing her
title to Yamilet Mewrcado in
Mexico last November.
A stacked undercard featuring
local talent in interesting
match-ups will precede the two
WBF title fights.
