Malawi boxer Musa Ajibu was given a technical knock-out by Zambia’s Joseph Chingangu in the third round in Lusaka on Saturday.
According to Zambia’s Daily Mail, Ajibu impressed many with his deft footwork and darting movements in the ring but he retired in the third round after he slipped and hurt his leg at the edge of the ring.
The 25-year-old Malawian, “who looked more like a middleweight boxer, stole a few punches and withdrew swiftly each time he made forays, making it difficult for the Zambian to get hold of him” it was reported.
The online report said Ajibu “spent most of the time running around the ring” but Chingangu finally got hold of him in the second round and landed a powerful punch which sent the Malawians to the canvas.
Ajibu, however, managed to beat the count standing and continued but he went down in round three while trying to dodge Chingangu’s flurry of punches and he could not recover, forcing him to retire, giving the 46-year-old Zambian an easy victory in this non-title fight, according to the report.
Earlier, another Malawians Jobson Adams was defeated by Zambia Gibbon Kamoto on unanimous points.
The two boxers matched each other but it was Kamoto who was declared winner after showcasing impressive performance in the ring, according to the Daily Mail.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
