Tanzania’s Fatuma Omari warned the Kenyan ”Iron Fist”  not to be fooled by her pretty face and petite body, adding that she is monster when unleashed in the ring.

“Fatuma I want to tell you not to be fooled by this face and this body. I have not come here to impress people with my pretty face but to work hard (for the title),” she said amid cheers from the crowd.

Kenya Professional Boxing Commission (KPBC) president Reuben Ndolo who presided over the presentation of the financial backing said the fight was informed by fruitful talks he had with WABA officials and especially given Zarika’s alluring form in the bare-chested game lately.

“Zarika is our champion and it was only fair that we negotiated for her to take a stab at a continental title. She has been a role model to many,” said Ndolo.
