Former World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Heavyweight Champion Elvis Moyo will try to reclaim his old title on Friday August 25, when he takes on Kenya´s Bernard Adie at Rainbow Towers Conference Centre in Harare, the capital of his home-country Zimbabwe.

Moyo, who has a mediocre but very misleading 5-5-2 (2) record, losing to good opponents such as former WBF World Champions Ilunga Makabu (twice) and Danie Venter, won the WBF All Africa title in November of 2013 by defeating former South African Champion Osborne Machimana.

He then disappeared from boxing as he turned his attention to MMA, before returning to the ring this past July with a second round knockout of Nigerian Akeem Tijani. Now “The Bulawayo Bomber” is ready to get back into the thick of things, but Adie will not be a push-over.


Nicknamed “The Viper of East Africa”, former African Boxing Union title-challenger Bernard Adie entered the paid ranks in 2010 and has since compiled a 15-5 (11) record fighting in places such as Dubai, D.R. Congo, Ghana, Germany and Russia, besides his native Kenya.

Also on the show, promoted by Kalakoda Promotions and labelled Harare´Geddon, former Zimbabwean Champion Chamunorwa “Sting” Gonorenda, 8-12 (5), will face Tanzania’s Kaminja Ramadhan, 11-7-1 (4), for the vacant WBF All Africa Cruiserweight title.

A stacked undercard will feature an explosive encounter between the aforementioned former WBF Champ Ilunga Makabu, 20-2 (19), and Mussa Ajibu, 28-9-5 (24) from Malawi. This will be Makabu´s second fight since losing to England’s Tony Bellew for the WBC World title last year.
