25-year-old Australian-based Tanzanian Bruno "The Terminator" Tarimo, has cracked the IBF's top 10 world rankings.
Tarimo has an impressive record (25-2-2) and is on a mega hot streak, winning the IBF Pan Pacific, IBF International 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 IBF’s top 10 and his thoughts moving forward.
“I would like to thank president (IBF) Daryl Peoples… and my manager 'The Boss' Tony Tolj for believing in me and making everything possible he has changed me and my family life. Earl Wingman, coach, Benji, Nadine 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 #13 and I will fight any world champion from 122lbs to 130lbs. 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.”
