IBF #10 and WBA #13 ranked super bantamweight contender Bruno Tarimo (25-2-2), who has been recently campaigning at super featherweight, is full steam ahead and gunning for all of the top names at super bantamweight.
Undefeated super bantamweight Ra’eese Aleem 17-0 (11) takes on southpaw Vic Pasillas 16-0 (9) for the interim WBA title at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut on January 23.
The fight will be featured on the undercard of the WBO super bantamweight title defence of Angelo Leo 20-0 (9) against Stephen Fulton 18-0 (8).
Bruno gave his thoughts on the two championship fights and his future
"I fight anyone, anywhere, anytime, I leave it all up to manager Tony Tolj. Ra’eese Aleem is an excellent fighter, I believe he will win the WBA interim title and make a lot of noise in the super bantamweight division, but I want the best and I issue the challenge to him. I'm WBA #13 and soon will be world champion, I know this, I believe this and I thank God for all the opportunities to give me and my family a better life and I will make my proud," Bruno said.
"Angelo Leo and Stephen Fulton is another excellent match, it should have happened but COVID always makes problems. I think Leo the WBO champion is in for a very tough fight, I don't want to pick a winner, I want the winner. Give me any world champion from super featherweight to super bantamweight. Diaz, Herring, Alvarado, Navarette, Warrington, Russell, Xu Can, Angelo Leo, Nery, Figueroa, Akhmadaliev. I am ready for everyone. I want to thank the IBF, WBA, for all their opportunities, this helps my family to give them a better life."
Tarimo's manager gave his take - "Bruno looked sensational in his recent fight and is getting better every day. Bruno is as old school as you get. He will literally will fight anyone, anywhere, anytime. Bruno is going to drop in weight classes and campaign at super bantamweight.
"There is a reason he is called the 'Terminator,' he does not stop until he terminates the opposition. We have seen Bruno defeat world rated and Olympic boxers since coming to Australia - Dib, English, Brunker, Gurdijeljac, May, Fleming. One thing is for certain, once Bruno gets his opportunity for a world championship its going to Hasta La Vista baby for his opponents!"
