Agnes Mtimaukanena ponders on future

Former World Boxing Forum (WBF) welterweight champion, Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando, is planning to make a comeback after a two-year break.

The mother of two has been out of the boxing scene due to family and business commitments.

“I will be making an announcement very soon about my future. I have been inactive because it is not easy to divide my efforts. I had to concentrate on my family and business at the same time. Nevertheless, I am still training in the gym keeping fit,” she said.

Mtimaukanena, who locally is considered as one of the pioneers for women’s boxing in the country, said her management team was yet to outline her comeback programme.

“Once the perfect opportunity resurfaces, then we will issue a statement about my next fight,” she said.

Nicknamed ‘Queen of the Park’, Mtimaukanena still hopes to win the World Boxing Council (WBC) title.

“That’s the belt I really wish to win. So I will try my best to get the belt,” she said.

However, she said women boxing was slow last year after reaching promising heights following the exploits of fellow female boxers including two belts holder Anisha Bashir who holds African Boxing Union (ABU) female Super Lightweight belt and Commonwealth lightweight title.

According to boxrec. com, Mtimaukanena has five wins including three defeats and a draw.
