4 boxers to fight in foreign land

Four local boxers are billed to take part in non-title fights in Europe and Africa over the weekend.

Mussa Ajibu, 31, is primed to face Maksim Vlasov in Korston Club, Moscow, Russia.

Ajibu has 28 wins, including 24 knockouts and has lost eight times.

He has drawn five times whereas Vlasov, 30, has 38 wins, including 21 knockouts and he has lost twice.

The eight-round non-title contest is set to take place in the early hours of today.

Ajibu said he was ready for the showdown on the biggest stage.

“I know it will be tough but I don’t want to disappoint my fans as well as the matchmaker. If I do well, I will get good offers,” he said.

Meanwhile, there were some disturbing developments which threatened to spoil Ajibu’s fight, including lack of a proper clearance.

“He is not licensed by the board [Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board] and he has no clearance. However, we understand that he got his clearance from Malawi National Council of Sports,” said a source.

Another international fight will involve Charles Misanjo who will clash with Emmany Kalombo at Kempton Park Civic Hall in South Africa tomorrow.

South Africa-based Malawian, Rodger Kumwenda, who owns Rocky Boxing Academy, said Misanjo will feature in the main supporting fight for a non-title welterweight contest.

Meanwhile, Aubrey Masamba and Robert Kachiza are in Namibia for non-title fights set for on Saturday.

Masamba will fight against Immanuel Joseph at Ramatex Hall in Windhoek whereas Kachiza will meet Joseph Hilongwa at the same venue.
