WON IN ROUND THREE—Makawa

Local boxer Chikondi ‘Mtengowaminga’ Makawa made use of home ground advantage to knock out the Democratic Republic of Congo boxer, Mulowayi Tshawaka, in round three at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe on Sunday.

It was an entertaining bout which saw the two boxers exchanging a flurry of punches from round one.

But, in the first two rounds, Tshawaka gave the spectators false hopes with good punches.

But his antics did not last long as Makawa changed his approach and took the game to the visitor in the third round, where he sent Tshawaka down to the canvas with his hard punches.

It was a moment of brilliance that decided the game and it was all over in a flash.

In his victory speech, Makawa fired warning shots at his opponents that he was geared to conquer them all this year.

“I am fit and ready for any boxer this year. I want to face good boxers this year so that I gauge my real strength. Bring Limbani Masamba on and I will teach him boxing lessons this year,” Makawa said.

Tshawaka conceded defeat, saying Makawa gave him a good fight.

“He gave me a good fight and I am not bitter that I lost,” he said.

In the main supporting bout, Dickson Saidi defeated Roy Yuda through a knock-out in an entertaining bout.

Up-and-coming boxer Yobe Kamnyunya triumphed over Jeromy Betiti on points.

Mudi Kuminga defeated Horace Kazembe on points in another supporting bout.

Guro Boxing Promotions organised the boxing contest. A representative of the stable, Clement Kanthiti, said they were impressed with the level of boxing in the country.
