Local boxer of the moment Kudakwache Banda, young brother to Phillimon Nkhakamila Banda will be out to preserve his clean record in professional boxing as he faces experienced Ernest Msoliza in an eight-round non-title professional bout scheduled for M1 Centre Point, formerly Fresh Air in Lilongwe on Sunday, April 24, 2016.
The towering Banda is the local boxer to watch at the moment, having fought 10 consecutive professional bouts and won all of them (eight knock-outs and two on points). Since turning professional last year, the Lilongwe based boxer has proved to be a tough customer in the ring, beating experienced professional boxers with Charles Misanjo, Roy Yuda and Chikondi Makawa his latest casualties.
The 22-year boxer will be out to preserve his clean sheet tomorrow, when he lines up against Msoliza, who has an equally impressive record, having fought against top boxers like Salim Chazama and Osgood Kayuni. He managed to defeat Chazama before losing the rematch but his bout against Kayuni ended in a draw.
Speaking with Nyasa Times ahead of the bout, Banda said he is looking forward to his eleventh straight win.
“I am well prepared for this bout. Msoliza is an experienced boxer with a good track record but I am not moved by that. My dream is to get an international belt and I want to start by beating all local boxers in my weight category before going international,” said Banda.
Msoliza said he is not cowed by Banda’s unbeaten record in professional boxing and would like to be the first boxer to stop him in his tracks.
“I have watched Kudakwache and he is a tough boxer. But the message I have for him is that his unbeaten record is going to end on Sunday. I have fought against top boxers in this country and cannot accept to lose to an inexperienced boxer like him,” said Msoliza.
The will be curtain-raised by a professional bout involving Yobe Kamunyunya and Robert Kachiza, who will be making a come-back after being knocked unconscious by a Zimbabwean boxer last year.
