Hard-hitting local top middleweight boxer Chimwemwe Chiotcha and his Zimbabwean challenger Brianne Mwando stepped up mind games ahead of their eight-round non-title bout at Motel Paradise in Blantyre today afternoon.
Chiotcha, 24, popularly known as â€˜Chipembereâ€™ in the ring, declared that he would teach Mwando a boxing lesson he will never forget.
“I have beaten him before, but this time, I just want to finish him off. I just want to silence him because he has been talking a lot.
“I know that some of my [Malawi Defence Force] bosses will be there to witness the fight and I wouldnâ€™t want to give them a raw deal,” said Chiotcha.
Chiotcha basks in the glory of winning all the 13 bouts on technical knockout since he turned professional.
However, Mwando, 22, declared that he would avenge when he takes to the ring against Chiotcha.
Chiotcha floored Mwando in the seventh round of their previous bout at Zomba Community Centre ground last year.
“He [Chiotcha] is more of a street fighter than a boxer and I will teach him a lesson that he will never forget,” said Mwando.
Mwando has won six out of seven professional bouts.
In the main supporting bout, Agnes Mtimaukanena will face Zimbabwean Fortunate Chizaro.
Mtimaukanena also promised victory.
“It has been quite sometime since I fought and I canâ€™t wait to get back into the ring,” she said.
However, Chizaro said she is set to end her opponentâ€™s remarkable run.
The bouts have been organised by Super Magic Boxing Promotions.
