Budding female boxer Ruth Chisale is expected to fight Ornella Domini on June 24 in Geneva, Switzerland, in a six-round fight.

Chisale has a perfect record having won all her six bouts, including by four knockouts.

She has defeated boxers such as Husna Zamba, Lucy Phiri, Ndau Chilimba and Anisha Bashil (twice).

However, Domini is equally good and experienced, having won all her 10 fights, including two by knockouts.

Former World Boxing Forum welterweight champion, Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando is also expected to take on Svetlana Kulakova next month.

Mtimaukanena-Mwando, 25, has five wins, three defeats and a draw whereas Kulakova, 34, is also unbeaten in 12 fights having won 11 and drawn once.

Mtimaukanena-Mwando was not available for a comment.

Meanwhile, light heavyweight boxer Mussa Ajibu, 31, with 28 wins, eight defeats and five draws, is also expected to fight in Russia on June 30 against a yet to-be-known opponent.

Apparently, Ajibu, alongside Chisale, left for Tanzania on Tuesday to process their visas.

Middleweight boxer Chimwemwe Chiotcha is set to become the first Malawian boxer to fight in Kosovo next month.

Chiotcha, 33, has 15 wins, including 11 knockouts and has suffered five defeats. However, details about his opponent were not readily available as we went to press.

Ngumi Boxing Stable Managing Director, Steve Msiska, has secured the fights in Europe.

“I sent contracts to the concerned camps and all are willing to fight. I can also confirm that Ajibu and Chisale have left for Tanzania where they will join my partner Emmanuel Mlundwa,” he said.

Msiska said, despite getting international exposure, the boxer were offered good contracts.

“I cannot disclose the amount [they will receive] because it is unprofessional [doing so]. However, I can only hint that it is above K1 million [each] for most boxers,” he said.
