ZIMBABWEAN boxer Elvis ‘Bulawayo Bomber’ Moyo has moved into the top 100 of the world rankings following his victory over South Africa’s heavy weight champion Ruann Visser in Pretoria last month.
Moyo is also based in South Africa. According to boxrec.com, a website dedicated to holding updated records of professional boxers, the Zimbabwean shot 42 places up the rankings and now sits on position 70 with 19 points to his name.
Moyo beat Visser in a non-title fight in the 10th round in a unanimous decision on 10 February.The victory, however, came at a high price when the boxer aggravated a left hand wrist injury.
Before the latest rankings Moyo was ranked 130 when he floored another Ukrainian heavyweight boxer, Maksym Pedyura, in the first round after 2 minutes 49 seconds at the City Sports Centre in Harare in April last year.
Moyo has won his last six fights with two technical knockouts and a single knockout. In his boxing career, which spans a decade, Moyo has had 16 professional fights and beating Visser was his sixth successive victory in the heavyweight division since losing to South African Danie Venter in July 2013.
He improved his record to nine wins, five defeats and two draws in 16 professional fights.
