New role delights Agnes Mtimaukanena


Newly appointed World Africa Boxing Association (Waba) commissioner Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando still has ambitious to bounce back into the ring.

“I still have a chance of going back in the ring but at the moment I have to concentrate on working with promoters, to promote title fights,” said Mtimaukanena who last fought on October 14, 2016.

Mtimaukanena-Mwando said she is expected to promote Waba title fights and also raise funds for the poor and orphans.


“Besides that I have to source sponsorship for the body [Waba]. I am planning on doing programs and activities so that we can help the poor and orphans. I am supposed to attend all Waba conventions and recruit potential members,” she said.

Mtimaukanena-Mwando believes her appointment will help local boxing to flourish.

“I am very excited with the appointment as it is not only going to help boxers but the nation,” she said.


Recently, the former World Boxing Forum (WBF) welterweight champion said she was considering taking up boxing referee or coach after hanging up her gloves.

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

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