Osgood Kayuni punishes Tanzanian boxer


Malawi Defence Force (MDF) boxer, Osgood Kayuni, made a sweet comeback onto the international stage when he defeated Tanzanian, Moses Mwalwanda, during an international non-title bout at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe on Sunday.

The international fight, which was marred by darkness towards the last two rounds, attracted a huge crowd.

After eight rounds of intensive fighting, Kayuni was declared the winner through a unanimous decision.


All three judges scored in favour of the Malawian boxer.

The judges scored 80-78, 80-72 and 78-74 in favour of Kayuni.

It was Kayuni’s first international bout since 2014.


Before the bout, the boxers had promised a knock-out, but Kayuni was the dominant force in the ring as he unleashed a flurry of punches throughout the bout.

Most of Kayuni’s punches were on target, and he showed his excellence in the ring.

However, the victory did not come on a silver platter as the Tanzanian boxer proved, on numerous occasions, that he was a quality fighter.

The loss was Mwalwanda’s first in nine bouts having won eight and a single draw, whereas Kayuni has won 24 bouts, five losses and three draws.

In his victory speech, Kayuni said it was a deserved victory.

“It’s a sweet victory for me after a long time without an international bout. I prepared well for the fight and I am pleased with my performance,” Kayuni said.

On his part, Mwalwanda conceded defeat and praised his opponent, but said he was looking for a rematch.

“He (Kayuni) is a good boxer, but Malawians are yet to see the real Moses. I am ready for a rematch anytime soon and I will teach him some boxing lessons,” Mwalwanda said.

In the main supporting bout, promising boxer, Kudakwache Nkhakamila Banda, continued his good record when he knocked down Ayuda.

Brian Mwando defeated Mussa Mkwanda.

Zama Boxing Promotions managing director, Precious Matipwili, promised to arrange more international bouts.
