Salimu Chazama still bitter
National Light Welterweight champion, Salimu Chazama, has come out of his shell three weeks after winning the title following his victory over Osgood Kayuni.
Chazama, 22, said he was still bitter that he did not knockout Kayuni during the 12-round title contest at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe on January 1.
“I was quiet because I had to recuperate. It was a gruelling bout. I am glad because I got the belt, but I am still bitter because I did not knockout Kayuni,” he said.
Chazama said he would welcome a title rematch if Kayuni makes his challenge official.
“I have unfinished business with him. So, if he really wants the belt, he can challenge me. I will be more than happy to accept it. I still want to give my fans what I promised them [a knockout],” he said.
Kayuni was elusive when asked if he would seek a rematch against Chazama.
“Salimu has some three months to keep the belt, so we will see what happens at the end of the three months,” he said.
Kayuni, 32, has won 28 times, including nine knockouts, three draws and six defeats.
Chazama has fought 27 bouts, winning 21, losing four times and drawing twice.
