History beckons for Bulawayo Bomber
SOUTH African-based Zimbabwean cage fighter Elvis Moyo is confident of knocking out Andrew van Zyl in tonight’s Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) heavyweight title fight.
Moyo and van Zyl trade leather in a fight dubbed, “The biggest stand-up battle in EFC history”, at Sun City in Rustenburg, South Africa.
Moyo, whose ring name is “The Bulawayo Bomber”, declared himself ready for tonight’s battle and said he would be out for revenge against his opponent who beat him in July 2014, forcing the Zimbabwean into submission with an arm-bar.
Tonight’s bill is Moyo’s second career fight against van Zyl.
“I’ve worked hard for this title fight and such opportunities to compete for a title are hard to come by, meaning that I should do my best to be the champion. I’m ready to fight Andrew.
“I’ve dropped my last three opponents either in two rounds or less and I’ve knocked them out. So to me it’s one way, knockout. Andrew is going to be right there in front of me and it’s just how much damage I want to inflict on him. By the end of the night I’ll be the man to beat at EFC,” said Moyo.
The Bulawayo-born cage fighter has seven career wins from 10 cage fights.
Moyo, whose ring name is “The Bulawayo Bomber”, recorded victories over Sors “Guru” Grobbelaar in his debut cage fight in March 2014, Wilhelm “Tiny” Strauss in August and Didier-Kilola in November of the same year. He also beat Lance Cerenio last year in February and also handed Vandam Mbuyi a defeat in December.
The Bulawayo Bomber exploded on Ricky Misholas in June and August this year before he beat Japanese mixed martial arts veteran Kiyoshi Tamura in the fourth round in a fight staged in Tokyo.
The Bulawayo Bomber lost twice in 2014 to Brendon Groenwald and van Zyl. His third loss was last year in June when he was knocked out by Poland’s Tomasz “Kredka” Kowalkowski after just 37 seconds.
Van Zyl has 13 career wins from 16 fights, eight of which were by knockouts.
Moyo should be wary of his opponent who is good on the ground.
“I’ve mastered the art of cage fighting and my ground work which used to be a big challenge for me has vastly improved. He is facing a complete fighter and he won’t stop me from getting that title. Actually, he should be afraid of me because I’m going to crush him,” said Moyo.
