Kudakwache Banda demands international title fights


Local welterweight champion Kudakwache Banda has taken his management team to task in a bid to convince New Dawn Boxing Promotions to arrange international title fights.

Kudakwache a young brother to veteran Philemon Nkhakamila Banda, has been tipped as the next big thing to have happened in boxing on the domestic scene.

The southpaw boxer, speaking ahead of the eight-round non-title bout against challenger Limbani Masamba set for tomorrow at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe, said he was technically good and fit to take on international opponents.


“It baffles me that that some of the boxers that go to fight international fights are not yet matured. They lack skill and stamina. I think it’s my time to compete in other countries more especially in South Africa and Namibia. I am wondering why my stable is taking long to implement this,” said the boxer who has a perfect record.

Kudakwache, 23, said he would showcase his class when he faces Limbani to convince New Dawn Boxing Promotions to arrange him international fight.

“I know Limbani will come easy. He has international experiences but I will show him that we are classes apart,” said the 23 year-old boxer who has 12 wins including eight knockouts.


New Dawn Boxing Promotions Managing Director, Mike Chimaliza, said they were promoting Kudakwache according to the strategy which they put in place three years ago.

“We are taking each step at a time. We will definitely go for international fights at an appropriate time and we will refer to our blueprint before taking such offers. As his management team we know what is best for him at the moment. We have a reputation and record to cherish and protect,” he said.

Meanwhile, Masamba has downplayed Kudakwache’s statements saying he was equally ready for the fight.

Masamba, 26, has 15 wins and five defeats in 20 fights.
