Boxers avoiding me, Osgood Kayuni claims


Junior welterweight boxer, Osgood ‘The Punisher’ Kayuni, is kicking his heels in frustration over a growing lack of local challengers, saying inactivity is hampering his progress.

“I don’t know why boxers within my division are avoiding me. Of course, I have fought, and punished most of them,” said the 28-year-old Malawi Defence Force pugilist.

Kayuni has vented his frustrations as he sharpens his knuckles, preparing to bounce back into the ring on March 27 to challenge Tanzanian, Moses Mwalwanda, at Limpopo in Lilongwe.


Kayuni said in the absence of local opponents, he might just have to bank on foreigners.

The Punisher then hailed newly-licenced stable, Zama Boxing Promotions, for considering him for the main non-title fight on the launch of the stable.

“I don’t take it for granted to be considered for the main cast during the launch. I will repay them with a good performance,” said Kayuni, whose career record is 23 wins, five losses and three draws.


Zama managing director, Precious Matipwili, said they considered Kayuni because “of late he hasn’t been fighting regularly because some quarters seem to ignore his prowess.”
