After successfully hosting a Middleweight title bout involving Brian Mwando and Alick Mwenda at M1 Centre Point a couple of weeks ago, Gunde Boxing Promotion will be back on stage on Boxing Day, December 26, 2017 as it hosts two mouthwatering bouts involving Malawian boxers and foreign pugilists.
According to managing director of the boxing firm Jack Gunde, the international bouts will involve renowned local boxers Wilson ‘Hard Hitter’ Masamba and Chikondi Makawa.
Masamba is set to exchange punches with Tanzania’s Epson Jovin in the main Lightweight non-title international bout with Makawa expected to slug it out against Rigen Champion from Democratic Republic of Congo in the main supporting bout.
There will also be other local bouts and entertaining activities to spice up the occasion, said Gunde in an interview with Nyasa Times.
“We are getting set for the boxing festival and the preparations are going on very well. Before the bouts, the involved boxers will on Christmas Day cheer the sick at Bwaila and Kamuzu Central Hospitals. We are asking well-wishers to come up with any form of assistance towards the hospital visit,” said Gunde.
Those willing to donate cash or materials are asked to call Gunde on 0997 040 922 or Arnold Kambwiri on 0992 100 386.
This will be the second time for Gunde Promotion to stage bouts after successfully hosting the Middleweight title contest involving Mwando and challenger Mwenda. Mwenda went on to win the title and reclaim the belt he lost to Felix Mwamaso, who ended up surrendering the title to Mwando.
The middleweight title bout was curtain-raised by another local contest involving Charles Misanjo and Kudakwache Banda. Misanjo won the bout on points.
Gunde expressed gratitude to boxing fans, companies and other individuals, who supported his firm during its first ever boxing bouts, saying the support and encouragement from fans and well-wishers propelled the firm to do more.
