Limbani Masamba seeks redemption in Namibia


Malawi’s junior welterweight boxer, Limbani Masamba ,is confident of chalking his first away international win when facing Sacky’’Izinyoka’ Shikukutu in Namibia next month.

Namibia’s Nestor Sunshine Boxing Academy will host the eight-round International Boxing Organisation (IBO) world international title fight on August 8 in Namibia.

The 23 year-old’s last away fight in Zambia ended in a loss to Congolese boxer Mbia Nkanku.


Masamba left the country on Thursday to finalise his preparations in Zimbabwe at Delta Force Boxing Academy.

“I am in good spirits and confident that l will win. It is a must that I have to win away from home as well. I now know what it takes to fight in a foreign country where you don’t have supporters. That time, I lost because I was a novice,” he said.

Delta Force Boxing Academy trainer Clyde Musonda said Masamba would have sparring sessions with his elder brother Wilson and Charles Misanjo before heading to Namibia.


“He will train with his compatriots for three days. We will just help him improve his style and game plan,” he said.

Meanwhile, national junior welterweight champion Osgood Kayuni fight against a South African boxer Phillip Ndou has been shifted from this August to September.

Musonda said there was no need to panic as Kayuni already signed a contract.

Musonda’s stable has teamed up with Malawi’s No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions to arrange the international fights.

No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions managing director, Craig Rousseau, said they expect Kayuni to continue training.

“He needs to keep shape to avoid being embarrassed in South Africa. The good thing is that we already signed the contract so if the fight fails to go through, then we will demand compensation because we already signed the contract,” he said.
