By SANDRA MWILA –
FORMER world heavyweight boxing champion, Joseph Chingangu’s coach Anthony Mwamba has said beating Francis ‘Galagata’ Zulu in an African Boxing Union (ABU) title fight next month will be a good stepping stone for his boxer’s dream of becoming world champion again.
Mwamba said Chingangu, known as “No Pressure’ was focused on the world title and had raised his training tempo and promised to crash anything that would stand in his way of becoming world champion again.
Chingangu is the former International Boxing Federation (IBF) heavyweight champion.
“Chingangu is a hardworking and experienced boxer and there is no doubt he will grab the world title again. And Galagata will be a good stepping stone for him to reach greater heights he really want to get to the top again,” he said.
Speaking in an interview, Mwamba said the veteran boxer was ready to take on Zulu and was anxiously waiting for February 28 to prove himself when the two meet in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for the African title.
“My boxer has been undergoing serious and intensive training twice in a day and I can assure Zambia that Chingangu is ready to down ‘Galagata’.
“Chingangu is very well prepared and in good shape for the Dubai clash and he will bring ABU title home which he deserves because of his hard work,” he said.
Chingangu said he wanted to eventually take on world champion Wladimir Klitschko for the world title.
He also described Zulu as a small boy who was only good at talking too much,
Chingangu promised to discipline and teach Zulu that boxing was fought in the ring.
