Malawian boxer Isaac Golden Boy Chilemba returns to the ring in Atlanta, US in a non-title bout against Cory Black Ice Cummings of US.
According to boxingscene.com the Malawian boxer based in South Africa will co-feature in the second fight between fellow Main Events stable Krusher Kovalev and Blake Caparello.
Chilemba said he would take the bout seriously to win and inch closer to his long awaited dream of a world title shot.
“I take all my opponents seriously as each one takes me a step closer to realizing my dream of the world title, so Cory Cummings should not for one minute think that I am coming unprepared,” Chilemba said.
“I also want to thank my team and all my fans. Come August 2 I will be fully charged and ready to claim victory.”
Isaac’s trainer, former welterweight and light welterweight world champion Buddy McGirt said they would leave stone unturned in preparations for victory.
“Isaac is going to be ready for Cummings. We are going to be in great shape and prepare for anything that Cummings may throw at us. A good performance will move Isaac to the next level and he will accept nothing less,” McGirt said.
Jodi Solomon, Chilemba’s manager, added, “Isaac’s winning on August 2 will be a testament to his work ethic, determination to succeed and the incredible training he receives from Buddy McGirt, who is one of the best trainers in the game.”
But Chilemba would face one of his toughest bouts from the Cummings who has an incredible knockout record.
Cummings said he would shatter the soft spoken Malawian boxer’s dreams of winning a world title.
“Everyone has a plan until they get hit,” he said, quoting boxing legend Mike Tyson.
His manager, Ron Rose, added, “Tell Isaac Chilemba to beware because there’s an ice storm that is going to hit Atlantic City on Aug 2nd, a ‘Black Ice’ storm, and there is nowhere for him to hide.”
The bout comes after Chilemba’s two consecutive wins with the victory over Michael Gbenga in eight rounds at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York on November 16 last year.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
