25-year-old Australian-based Tanzanian Bruno “The Terminator” Tarimo, has cracked the WBA’s top 10 world rankings.
Tarimo has an impressive record (25-2-2) and is on a mega hot streak, since coming to Australia he has won the IBF Pan Pacific, IBF International title and WBA Oceania title and his last four opponents have a combined record of 101 wins and 9 losses. They were all former world rated boxers and he beat them convincingly in their backyards.
Tarimo is the chief sparring partner for the Moloney twins, Jason and Andrew.
The man known as “The Terminator” opened up about entering the WBA’s top 10 and his thoughts moving forward.
“I would like to thank president (WBA) Gilberto Mendoza, WBA Oceania President Francisco Martinez, who was very sick and I dedicated my last fight to, and I am happy to say he is recovering very well and thank you so much to my manager ‘The Boss’ Tony Tolj for believing in me and making everything possible he has changed me and my family life.
All my team everyone is like new family for me. I am so lucky God blessed me with such a good team,” Tarimo stated.
“I am now IBF #10, WBA #10 and WBC World rated and I will fight any world champion from 122lbs to 130lbs but I prefer my natural weight 122 and I’ll take all the Super Bantamweight World Champions WBA-IBF Super Champion, Murodjon Akhmadaliev, WBA World Champion: Brandon Figueroa,
WBA Gold Champion: Ronny Rios, WBC: Luis Nery, WBO: Stephen Fulton and WBA Interim Champion, Raeese Aleem
I am only 25-years-old and learning every day with coach. I’ve had 29 professional fights but I learned more in my time in Australia because I was lucky enough to be part of the Team Moloney training team. It was really an honor to see the professionalism of Jason and Andrew Moloney once I came to Australia, I know I must improve every step of the way.
“Our team is very strong and we are getting better every day. We have Andrew Moloney who should be world champion, what happened to him is not good for boxing and Jason Moloney. I have no doubt he will be world champion. I am very lucky to be in such a good country as Australia, and I promise I will win the world title for my people in Tanzania and my new family in Australia. Never underestimate the Terminator, I will not stop until I become the world champion and make my family proud.”
