Crispin Moliyati underlined his credentials when he defeated Mzuzu-based Laston Kayira in an eight round non-title bout staged at Lilongwe Community Ground on Sunday.
It was the first bout of the year which was organized by Superior Boxing Promotions. Moliayti dominated the fight from the word go and it was easy for the judges to hand him the victory. He won the bout through unanimous decision.
On the other hand, Kayira also showed some aggressiveness in the last stages of the bout as he was aiming for a killer punch.
In an interview after the bout, Moliyati said it was a deserved victory.
“I knew it was going to be an easy bout for me. I have proved that I am a good boxer. It was training bout for me because I want to reclaim my belt from Salimu Chazama,” Moliyati said.
On his part, Kayira said he was aiming for a rematch. “I have started the year on a bad note but I will challenge him again,” the Mzuzu-based boxer. However, there was drama as Robert Kachiza failed to show up in the main supporting bout.
Kachiza was supposed to fight against Alexander Likande
Last year, Kachiza also made headlines for wrong reasons when he was knocked down by a Zimbabwean boxer in round two at the same venue.
Superior Boxing Promotions, director, Japhet Majekete was impressed with the turnout of fans.
“We are very impressed that fans came in large numbers to watch the bout despite financial difficulties during this period. As Superior Boxing Promotions, we promise boxing fans that we will organize more exciting bouts this year,” Majekete said.
