Dawn has looked to Zambia for a replacement. Msoliza manager demanded an air fare plus hotel accommodation. But we could not manage due to lack of sponsorship,” he said.

Chimaliza engaged matchmaker Steve Mawenzi Msiska to search for Msoliza’s replacement.

Mawenzi initially presented me with Tanzanian boxers but I refused because being a man of quality, I thought we needed to give Malawian fans quality. Mind you, it is the Zambian [Alfred Mughogho] who humiliated Limbani at BICC [Bingu International Conference Centre] recently,” he said.
