Malawi Defence Force (MDF) boxer, Wilson Masamba, knocked out his South Africa-based malawian opponent Sandro Jackson in round three of a lightweight non-title bout at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe on Sunday.
Jackson was too quick in the first-round, unleashing a flurry of punches but Masamba used his usual hit-and-duck antics.
Sensing danger, Masamba upped his game in the second-round, unleashing a powerful punch which sent Jackson to the canvas.
Jackson fell like a log and needed first aid attention. It was the end of the contest.
After the bout, Masamba said: “He is too young for me and is not at my level. If he wants a rematch, he should be prepared because I will teach him boxing lessons again.”
Jackson conceded defeat, saying Masamba was a better boxer on the day, adding “but I will prepare for a rematch.”
In the main supporting bout, Dickson Saidi defeated Chikondi Makawa through a unanimous points decision.
