Manyuchi has proved to be a boxing sensation for Zimbabwe as well as the rest of the continent (Africa) . In the boxing ring there are a few heroes who are being honoured for their skillful action in the ring , just to name a few we have the likes of Mayweather , Pacquiao, Broner etc
His in no doubt a fit opponent for the above mentioned boxers, one might say “its just the right promoter away till he makes it to the MGM”. Looking at his age (25 YEARS) Manyuchi is a dozen years younger than one of the greatest mid weight fighter so far, Mayweather, who is 38 years old and still fighting .
This made me worry a lot , the main worry stemming from his long stay in Zimbabwe since he won, the boxer has been in Zimbabwe which is good because he is the son of the soil, however In Zimbabwe there is a lot going on Economically which is unattractive for one who wants to be an aspiring boxer.
In Zambia and Zimbabwe, there are a few promoters, most of them have not even inked a 6 figure deal on paper, looking at this makes our country a desert for a promising boxer like Manyuchi. He needs to be in a country where he can be seen and associate with promoters who can get him a big fight.
The current situation in Zimbabwe is bad, most big companies are struggling, some of them are actually retrenching and firing workers in this Economic hardship phase. Manyuchi deserved to have Brands rushing for him and using him as a brand ambassador to market products. I can imagine if Manyuchi was in United States and won the Trophy, he will be one of the top earners instantly but here in Zimbabwe not many companies were moved.
Health and Lifestyle
As a boxer one needs to be at a place whereby food and lifestyle should be strictly monitored, Manyuchi needs top class medical attention and a very strict area where he can excel in terms of performs which is enabled by health and diet and lifestyle.
The fighter needs a place whereby he not only has 3 days of fame but a month long of media coverage so that the world through television and social media will know him, now being in Zimbabwe no news media is over a million likes or followers it’s all in the 100 thousand range which is a shame.
An example of a Zimbabwean who has made it internationally with lots of merits and accomplishments is Dereck Chisora , if he was i Africa would he have made it this far ? probably he would have but then it will be mountain climb for the boxer. Being in the right place at the right time with the right skill ad energy is good enough luck.
Imagine if the late Proud Killimanjaro went to persue his boxing career in United States , it definitely could have been a really internationally reckoned story, this is a head up for the Iron Fist Manyuchi.
