Ramadhani Shauri to move down to lightweight
International Boxing Federation Africa (IBF/AFICA) – FRIDAY 17 MAY, 2013, Dar Es Salaam, TANZANIA – The “IBF Continental Africa Featherweight Champion” Ramadhani Shauri of Tanzania will shift to the lightweight division when he meets an opponent yet to be decided by his camp for the “IBF World Youth Lightweight Title”.
This endless smiling young Turk captured the “IBF Continental Africa Featherweight Title” in August last year after dispatching the never quitting Ugandan boxing machine Sande Kizito in the sizzling duel of the year at the Diamond Jubilee Social Hall in Dar Es Salaam.
Fighting under the tutorship of Lucas Rutahinurwa, the Managing Director of Kitwe General Traders a company incorporated in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, Shauri has yet to find opponent to challenge him due to many boxers of his weight division ditching him!
Known for his ferocity punches which leave his opponents in awe as he mercilessly climbs from their bodies to the heads like hungry tiger, Shauri is one boxer who fights opponents with a broad smile even as he takes punches.
Those who know him are convinced that Shauri is the world champion material who needs to find the right direction in boxing to ride on the tide of celebrities. He has a way of crouching into opponent’s bodies as expose himself unguarded to lure them into submission.
Born and raised in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, Shauri Ramadhani trained under the experienced coach Mzazi who keeps quite a large stable of young boxing doers most of whom extorts fears to their opponents in this “Haven of Peace city” of Dar Es Salaam!
But as he keenly seeks to boost his boxing stock in the higher division, would he be in Peace or throw himself to the danger Zone?
