Humiliated former World Boxing Forum (WBF) champion, Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando, has promised to bounce back from her defeat against Zambian Loleta Muzeya.
Mtimaukanena was gunning for a World Boxing Council (WBC) international welterweight title but her hopes ended in defeat as Muzeya won the fight through a third round technical knockout in Harare, Zimbabwe on Friday.
However, Mtimaukanena’s husband-cum-trainer, Brian Mwando, speaking on her behalf, said she was disappointed with the result but will still keep training to perfect her game.
“We thank everyone who supported us. We had our game plan and unfortunately it did not go the way we planned. We will not relax or get discouraged. We will return to the gym to work on our shortfalls,” he said.
Mtimaukanena received financial support from Ori Meat Products and Beata Printing Company during her preparations for the international bout.
In 2013 Muzeya, won on her professional debut when she beat Mtimaukanena on unanimous decision at Government Complex in Lusaka, Zambia.
Muzeya seems to have turned her Malawian opponents into punching bags.
She twice defeated Anisha Basheer on unanimous decision before registering another win over Eneles Nkhwanti.
At the same event, Mtimaukanena’s compatriots Ellen ‘Black Tigress’
