Big Zulu Wins First Boxing Match, Dismisses Defeat Predictions Against Cassper Nyovest
Big Zulu, a South African rapper coming off a knockout victory in his boxing debut, has dismissed predictions that he will lose a future battle against fellow rapper Cassper Nyovest. Big Zulu won his first-round match against Brian Dings on Sunday at Craigh Hall Park in Randburg.
The Inkabi Records boss tweeted footage of the fight in which he knocked out his opponent. Despite Imali Eningi’s happiness with his performance, some fans doubted his boxing abilities. One fan warned Big Zulu that if he fought as he did on Sunday, he would lose to Cassper.

However, the 37-year-old rapper, buoyed by his recent triumph, retorted with a contemptuous tweet. Big Zulu put in a lot of work to prepare for his first boxing battle, shedding nearly 13 kg and following trainers’ recommendations on lifestyle constraints.
The rapper claimed that one of the lifestyle changes he made throughout his training was to avoid romantic relationships, which he believes contributed to his aggression and success in the ring. Despite his recent success and training, Big Zulu is undeterred by predictions of failure in a future fight against Cassper Nyovest.
