“The way I fought really shows how prepared I was and am now looking forward to title fights because I want to win more belts,” sad Mtimaukanena the former World Boxing Federation (WBF) light middleweight champion, who has won a second consecutive international fight since returning from a two year break in April.

She earned her glory through unanimous points’ decision after registering 60-54 on the scorecards of each three judges Lovemore Katanda, Desire Kambewa and Olusegun Kapanga.

With the win, Mtimaukanena-Mwando has improved her record to six victories, two losses and a draw.

The 23-year-old Malawian looked very sharp as she attacked Awino with hooks and jabs to the delight of the fans that came to watch the welterweight fight, organised by Alufandika Boxing Promotions.

Awino said she wants a rematch.

In the six-round main supporting bout, Henry Muyaya beat Bright Mdoka on points. In other curtain raising fights, Brighton Mcheni, Lameck Sinchaya, Obet Makayika and Dalitso Seyani outclassed Wala Milanzi, Peter Weta, Blessings Petulo and Henry Masasa, respectively.
