Kosovo-bound boxers camp in Tanzania


Kosovo-bound Malawian boxers, Chimwemwe Chiotcha and Limbani Masamba, are fine tuning in Tanzania ahead of their non-title fights set for the city of Palestra Karragagi on July 28.

The pair will travel to Kosovo from Tanzania.

Chiotcha, of the Malawi Defence Force, will face Timy Shala.


The Malawian, 33, has 15 wins, including 11 knockouts and five defeats whereas Shala, 31, has 21 wins, including eight knockouts, two defeats and a draw.

Shala was born in Kosovo but resides in Austria.

Chiotcha said he would like to make an impact during the fight.


“I have travelled extensively and I know that it will be tough. However, I know what to do. I am not going there to just see their country. I will be there to fight and promote my nation,” he said.

Masamba was equally confident ahead of the eight-round non-title showdown against Faton Vukshinaj, 26, of Switzerland.

“The training in Tanzania has helped us to prepare physiologically as well. I know we are being underrated but we will shock them,” he said.

Meanwhile, Israel Kam’mwamba, 22, will be up against Tanzanian Francis Miyeyusho, 37, in a 12-round East and Central African Professional Boxing Federation lightweight title fight.

The contest will be staged at Dar Live Hall in Dar-es-Salaam tomorrow.

Miyeyusho has 41 wins, including 24 knockouts, and has lost 17 fights with 14 of them being knockouts.

Kam’mwamba has eight wins, including five knockouts.

Kam’mwamba said he was unfazed by the challenge of taking on the experienced opponent.

“My stable No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions gave me adequate support and I want to repay them by winning the belt,” he said.

Matchmaker, Steve ‘Mawenzi’ Msiska of Ngumi Boxing Stable, was also confident ahead of the contests.

“All I can say is that we are not going there as tourists,” he said.
