Zimbabwean businessperson Baba Chopa has offered a Mercedes Benz C180 Kompressor to Malawi female boxer Anisha ‘Massacre’ Bashir if she wins the World Boxing Council (WBC) silver lightweight bout against Briton Chantelle Cameron.
Bashir is set to face the Briton in the elimination WBC bout on June 28 at York Hall in London.
Revealing the development, Cyde Musonda of Deltaforce Boxing Academy in Zimbabwe where Bashir is camping said the two parties have signed an agreement on the offer.
“What a great opportunity for my boxer to fight best female boxers of the world. We have been waiting for this fight to happen. As we speak, Bashir has been offered a car by Zimbabwe businessman if she wins,” he said.
On her part, Bashir described the offer as a motivation ahead of the bout.
“It is a big motivation. That aside, this is a big bout I need to do well. I am doing everything possible to do well,” she said.
The celebrated Malawi female boxer was forced to retire the African Boxing Union (ABU) super-lightweight and Commonwealth British Empire titles because there were no challengers.
The Malawi National Council of Sports Best Female Athlete of the Year, won the two belts after defeating Kenyan Consolota Musanga in 2017 and Scottish Samantha Smith last year, respectively.
Bashir’s management team, No Pain No Gain, said they opted to abandon the two belts and go for WBC silver lightweight belt in which she is fourth in line.
“We are moving on and focusing on bigger things,” said No Pain No Gain manager Craig Rousseau.
The WBC bout, which will be beamed on ESPN, is being sponsored by MKT Global.
