Four boxers, including Chimwemwe Chiotcha, left the country for Namibia on Saturday to take part in international fights.

Chiotcha, Limbani Masamba, Charles Misanjo and Chikondi Makawa left by road through Zimbabwe, where they are expected to be joined by Delta Force Boxing Academy trainer, Clyde Musonda, before proceeding to Windhoek, Namibia.

Chiotcha will face Namibian, Walter Kautondokwa, in a 12-round World Boxing Organisation-Africa middleweight title.

In a six-round welterweight non-title bout, Masamba will take on Jatoorora Tjingaveta whereas Misanjo will meet Emmanuel Mungandjala in another six-round welterweight non-title contest.

Chiotcha, speaking before departure, said it was his dream to win an international title.

“I am not taking this fight lightly. I will go there to show them that I am equally hungry for the belt. It is my dream that I should win one of these belts,” he said.

No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions’ Managing Director, Craig Rousseau, and Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board (MPBCB) representative, Mbachichi Nyirenda, said they were confident that the four boxers will win the bouts in Namibia.

“They have left much earlier because we want them to get acclimatised in Namibia,” Rousseau said.
