Combatant Wilson Masamba will face Zimbabwean boxer, Richard Muliri, in an international fight on March 26 at M1 Centre point in Lilongwe.

Malawi Boxing Association (Maba)- professional wing has organised the bout in what is a u-turn for Masamba.

The boxer told the media last week that he was returning to the Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board, saying Maba’s professional boxing wing was not ready to sanction professional bouts.

However, in the latest change of mind, Masamba has now said he is looking forward to the fight.

“I would like to thank Maba for organising the fight. Actually, I have started preparations,” Masamba said.

Maba Professional wing Chairperson, Daud Chikwanje, said the bout has been organised to keep boxers active.

“It will also help our boxers to gain international exposure. Masamba is an experienced boxer. We have no doubt that he would perform well during the bout,” Chikwanje said.

In the main supporting bout, United Kingdom-based boxer, Philip Gabriel will slug it out against Chimwemwe Chiotcha.

The boxers signed contracts for the bout on Tuesday in Lilongwe.

Chiotcha also expressed his gratitude to Maba for organising the fights.

“This is great news to us. Gabriel is a great boxer and I know it will be one of my toughest bouts in my career,” Chiotcha said.

In another bout, Alick Chitepete will meet George Kandulu.

Meanwhile, Masamba, Chiotcha and Musa Ajibu have maintained that they still belong to Maba.

The three boxers have since appealed to the two bodies, Maba and MPBCB, to resolve their differences for the good of the sport.

“As boxers, we are not happy with the ongoing wrangle. The dispute is not good for boxing. It is now becoming personal,” Ajibu said.
