Former World Boxing Forum (WBF) welterweight champion, Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando said she was considering taking up boxing referee or coach after hanging up her gloves.

But she said she is not yet done fighting.

“At the moment I am still thinking about fighting. I want to return into the ring. But should I retire I think I will become a coach or a [boxing] judge. This can be one way of giving back to the sport,” she said.

Mtimaukenena-Mwando said it was important to serve the sport that made her popular in the country.

“This is why I have to encourage girls to pick up the sport. I also want to share my knowledge with others. So if I am not getting back into the ring to fight I will return as a judge, referee or coach,” she said.

The mother of two has been out of the boxing scene due to family and business commitments.

Mtimaukanena-Mwando, who locally is considered as one of the pioneers of women’s boxing in the country, recently told our sister paper, Malawi News, that her management team was yet to outline her comeback program.

Nicknamed ‘Queen of the Park’, Mtimaukanena-Mwando, still hopes of winning the World Boxing Council (WBC) title.

“That’s the belt I really wish to win. So I will try my best to get the belt,” she said.

According to boxrec.com, Mtimaukanena-Mwando has five wins including three defeats and a draw.
