All three judges scored in Mwamaso’s favour 80-72, 80-78, 78-72 but Mwambene who struggled throughout the rounds, took the loss with dignity.

The Tanzanian boxer said  he was happy to have withstood his opponent to lose on points.

“He planned to finish me off in the fourth round but I managed to stand the heat until the last round. I feel it’s a good result for me although he has won on points. It is very hard to win away but I love boxing and I am ready to fight me him again,” Mwambene said.

Despite height disadvantage over the Tanzanian he put up a brave fight.

Mwamaso said he worked hard during training to win but disclosed that he was disappointed with the ability of his opponent.

“There’s no hidden strategy for my success. It is all about working hard during training. But it’s clear that Mwambeni cannot match me. Next time the promoter should bring in a stronger opponent,” said the Malawian boxer.

Boxing analyst Stuart Moyo rated the bout as exciting and applauded the Tanzanian for fighting to the end.

“It was a good fight. Although the Tanzanian fared poorly in most rounds he persevered till the last round. That is what is expected in boxing,” Moyo said.

It was a rematch after the two boxers also fought in 2013 and the Malawian won a split decision.

I watched this fight and before it started, I almost gave a win to Mwambene in view of his physical stature against Mwamaso. However, Mwamaso fought like a tiger giving Mwambene no chance. Congratulations Mwamaso, you are very good fighter. Practice more.
