Mzuzu-based professional boxer Ernest Msoliza has begun preparations ahead of the June 6 non-title bout against Osgood Kayuni at Obrigado Leisure Park in Mzuzu.
Already, Msoliza has warned his opponent that he should not expect a walk over during the bout.
Aunt Tina Boxing Promotions in conjunction with Northern Region Boxing Committee (NRBC) has organised the eight-round fight.
Msoliza, who recently beat Bright Mdoka, told The Nation on Wednesday that he is training hard to knock out Kayuni.
“He made a mistake accepting to fight me in Mzuzu. He will not last more than four rounds,” said Msoliza.
But, Kayuni, 23, played down his opponent’s outburst, saying Msoliza is far from spoiling his winning streak.
He added that Msoliza is yet to reach Kayuni’s boxing level.
Kayuni has fought 29, won 23 fights, lost five and drew once while Msoliza has 17 professional bouts, winning 10, losing five and two draws.
The winner will receive K120 000 while the loser will walk home with K80 000.
