Salam Vs Gondarenda

In their last match in August Gondarenda retained his belt on a split decision.  After the match, Gondarenda declared that he would fight Salam again, “any time any place”. Salam has promised to leave nothing to chance this time, claiming he would knock the Zimbabwean out. He says that the match is personal, he is promising to make Gondarenda pay for the previous “injustice” that he believes occurred in the last match. Salam vows not to risk letting the judges decided the winner like the last match. This match definitely promises a lot of entertainment for its viewers, be sure to catch the match.

The match will be a contrast of styles. Gondarenda, who is considered the come forward fighter, and Salam the sleek counter puncher, fighting often on the back foot. To emerge the winner Salam would need to be more definitive in his approach. In the last match, he clearly landed the cleaner blows, but it was the Zimbabwean champion’s relentless aggression and ring control that probably swayed the judges during their first matchup.
