WORLD Boxing Federation (WBF) All-Africa heavyweight champion Elvis Moyo's hopes of fighting overseas have been dealt a blow after his British opponent Adam Machaj pulled out of a non-title fight set for Manchester, England next month.

The Bulawayo Bomber, as Moyo is affectionately known, had secured the bout after reclaiming the vacant continental title by knocking out Kenya's Bernard Adie at the Harare International Conference Centre on August 25.

The 33-year-old Moyo, who outsmarted the 44-year-old Kenyan in the main event of the "Harare Geddon", which featured nine bouts put together by Kalakoda Promotion and Kwese Sport, said he was disappointed that Machaj had pulled out of the UK bout.

"My UK fight has been cancelled. My opponent pulled out without an explanation. Obviously I'm disappointed that I won't be boxing and instead I will battle in a cage fight on the first weekend of November. What I know is that my EFC opponent is from Germany and he is undefeated. This should be an interesting fight," said Moyo.

The Bulawayo Bomber was supposed to fight at the "Africa vs UK" dubbed bill on November 10 with fellow  Zimbabwean Felix Venganayi. The bill is part of the Friday Fight Nights series organised by ESPN Kwese and South African boxing promoters Kalakoda.

Venganayi (34), will trade leather with Joe Murray of UK in a WBC Silver International lightweight title.

The Gweru-born boxer, who is now based in Cape Town, has 14 career fights, recording 10 wins and four defeats.

Venganayi heads to Manchester bubbling with confidence after winning his last two fights – a KO against Luvuyo Mzamo last Friday in Cape Town and a TKO against George Owano who he fought at Rainbow Towers, Harare on August 25.

Some of the African boxers going to Manchester include Namibia's Abraham Ndeandapo who will fight against Ryan Doyle for the WBC International junior lightweight title and Angola
