Charles Manyuchi arrived to a hero’s welcome when he touched down at the Harare International Airport after defeating the Russian Boxer Dmitry Mikhaylenko at the DIVS Hockey Arena in Ekaterinburg on Friday.  

The celebrity was instantly whisked to the five-star Rainbow Towers Hotel where a party was hosted in his honour by the Minister of Sports and Recreation, Makhosini Hlongwane.

The recently-crowned WBC silver welterweight champion said it felt good to be home, reiterating he had instantly become more popular than the quail bird, chihuta.
