Boxing lovers in the country especially the central region will witness a return of boxing bouts on 1st November at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe; seven months from when sporting activities were suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The non-title bout on this day will involve challenger Alexander “The Cage” Likande and Salim “The Destroyer” Chazama and has been organised by Keba Boxing Promotions.
Likande turned professional three years ago and says he is ready to show Chazama his prowess in the game.
“I decided to challenge Chazama because he is one boxer who can give me a good fight. I don’t fear those who consider themselves established in the sport.
“Chazama has a mountain to climb in as far as this bout is concerned. My preparations are going on smoothly. Chazama should know he will be fighting a much improved Likande,” charged the challenger on a local radio station.
