Ruth Chisale steps up preparations
Budding boxer Ruth Chisale has said she hopes to improve her fighting style by training in South Africa ahead of next month’s World Boxing Council elimination fight against Zambian Lolita Muzeya.
A fortnight ago, Chisale stopped South African Ndabayini Kholosa in the sixth round of an eight-round non-title contest held in the Rainbow Nation.
After the bout, Chisale earned praises from South African trainers Dominico Spirito and Johny Anthony.
The Malawian admitted that it would be difficult for her to beat Muzeya in the fight that is scheduled for Lusaka on December 30.
“She is tough and doing well. However, it is good that I came to South Africa for camp training. I am being drilled by good trainers and managers to help me achieve my goals. I am also using excellent facilities,” Chisale said.
Muzeya has tormented Malawian boxers—defeating Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando (twice), Anisha Bashir (twice) and Eneles Nkhwanti (once).
The Zambian has a perfect record, having won all her 12 fights, five of them by knockouts, whereas Chisale, 20, is unbeaten in 10 fights, including six by knockouts.
Chisale also hailed her Manager, Steve Msiska, of Ngumi Boxing Stable and South Africa-based Romio Kumwenda of Rocky Boxing Academy for partnering to enable her train in South Africa.
