Duncan Village boxer Azinga ‘Golden Boy’ Fuzile has promised to show the world of boxing what he can do when he squares up against Kenichi Ogawa from Japan. 

Fuzile and Ogawa are due to clash in a vacant International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior-lightweight title fight at the Hulu Theatre in Madison Square Garden, New York City, United States, on Saturday, 27 November (Sunday, 28 November, South African time). 

“Let me show inside the ring what I’m going to do,” the former South African featherweight champion said during a media workout on Tuesday. 

Fuzile admitted, though, that the 33-year-old Japanese is a formidable opponent. Ogawa once held the IBF title, but was stripped after it was discovered that he had used a banned substance when he defeated American boxer Tevin Farmer in 2017. 

“He’s a tough guy. He comes forward and he’s got a left straight he likes throwing. I think I’m gonna work on that, try to counter the straight left,” the 25-year-old Fuzile said. 

Meanwhile, Fuzile has said that a quick end of the fight or a full distance will depend on how much of his blows Ogawa can take.
