Pugilist Chimwemwe Chiotcha lived up to his pre-fight tough talk when he knocked out Tanzanian boxer, Salei Mkwalekwa, in an eight-round non-title bout at M1 Centrepoint in Lilongwe on Sunday.
Chiotcha unleashed a flurry of punches, forcing the Tanzanian boxer to retire in round four. Mkwalekwa raised his hands in surrender.
The Tanzanian boxer gave fans false hopes in the first round, but Chiotcha stepped up his tempo in the second round. He landed some devastating punches on the face of Mkwalekwa.
The powerful Chiotcha was too good and too tactical against the Tanzanian boxer.
Chiotcha, who returned recently from a Malawi Defence Force (MDF) assignment in the Democratic Republic of Congo, also defeated South African boxer,Ntuntuko Memela, last month.
After the bout, Chiotcha said: “He is too young for me. I want good boxers who can give me tough times in the ring.”
Mkwalekwa said he was ready for a rematch. Organisers, Superior Boxing Promotions’ Managing Director, Japhet Majekete, said he was impressed with the huge turnout.
