Cape Town – Rapper Big Zulu is preparing for his first steps into the boxing ring and he says he is willing to do whatever it takes to win the match.
He’s going to be fighting Brian Dings on April 23.
“I didn’t choose my opponent, the people training me suggested him to me because he is big, but I have never been beaten, so I won’t start now,” he said.
Big Zulu has been training hard for the fight and posted pictures of himself on a jog and encouraging fans to get tickets for the big fight.

Ahead of the match, Zulu has made the decision to make some big lifestyle changes, including abstaining from sex and drinking less alcohol, under the guidance of his trainers.
“I respect the advice they have been giving me. They advised me not to sleep with women while training. One of the boxers I saw at the gym is going on seven months without sleeping with a woman, and you can see by the way he moves and the way he is aggressive when he fights that it has been long since he slept with a woman. With me I can tell the difference when I do sleep with a woman, I tend to be weak, my knees are weak, so I’m trying. Even when it comes to drinking, I try to stay away from that, perhaps I have just one drink,” he said, according to TimesLIVE.
Big Zulu also revealed he’s lost a lot of weight since he started preparing for the fight, losing over 10kgs for the fight, starting at 127.5kgs and now weighing 115.5kgs
“I’ve lost weight and it turns out the more I lose weight, the faster and stronger I become. My wish is to continue doing it because it has made me more disciplined.”
