Malawian pugilist Chiotcha loses again to Tanzanian boxer

It never rains but pours for renowned Malawi middleweight boxer Chimwemwe Chiotcha after losing to Francis Cheka again in rematch held at Jahmuri Morogoro Stadium in Tanzania on Saturday.

Chiotcha lost on unanimous points to the Tanzania but cried foul over the judges’ decision.

“It was a good game and I think I did enough to win. I will even bring the DVD for the fight so that people back home should watch and appreciate my concern. I clearly defeated him (Cheka) but the judges favoured their compatriot,” he said.

But the Liwonde-bred boxer said he was he was not bitter with judges’ decision.

“I won the fight and my friend was in visible pain. I have no regrets no wonder the promoters want me to face him (Cheka) in a title fight later this year,” he said.

Ngumi Boxing Stable owner Steve ‘Mawenzi’ Msiska, who accompanied the boxer, also felt that Chiotcha won the fight.

“He was in control of the fight and was never troubled. The promoters were equally shocked with the result. No wonder the promoters have offered contract to Chiotcha to take on Cheka in a title fight,” he said.

Chiotcha is then expected to continue with his preparations for the forthcoming non title fight against Sherrif Kasongo on Congo to be held this month end.

The loss has dented his once perfect record since turning professional.
