BULAWAYO-born South African-based cage fighter Elvis "Bulawayo Bomber" Moyo bounced back to winning ways on Saturday night by knocking out Vandam Mbuyi in a non title fight at Carnival City in Johannesburg.

Moyo, whose last fight was in June when he lost to Poland's Tomasz "Kredka" Kowalkowski, delivered a combination of punches in the second round to knockout Mbuyi.

The ecstatic Zimbabwean pugilist said his team will work hard to ensure he gets an opponent for another fight in March.

"I'm happy with this victory. However, I think I took long to deliver those deadly combinations of punches because Mbuyi moved a lot, which made it difficult. What I'm happy about is that now there is a possibility of me fighting for a title in May and what my manager needs to do is to look for an opponent in March. After that June defeat, I needed a comeback like this and I'm glad I managed to bounce back in style," said Moyo.

Saturday's win was Moyo's fifth in eight EFC Championship Africa fights.

His other victories were against Sors "Guru" Grobbelaar in his debut cage fight in March last year, Wilhelm "Tiny" Strauss in August and Didier-Kilola in November. Lance Cerenio was Moyo's last victim in February.

The Bulawayo Bomber lost twice last year to Brendon Groenwald in May and Andrew Van Zyl in July.

He recorded his third defeat against Kowalkowski.

Moyo handed Mbuyi his fourth EFC Championship career defeat.

Going into Saturday's fight, Mbuyi had three wins and three defeats.

His victories were recorded in 2013 against Mohamed Abdel Karim, Strauss and Grobbelaar.

Last year, he lost twice to Groenwald in February and March. Mbuyi's last defeat was in October when he lost to Andrew van Zyl.
