Rising female boxer Ruth Chisale has promised to knockout Tanzanian Rahema Abdala when the two clash on Sunday at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe.
In an interview in Lilongwe on Thursday soon after finishing her morning training, Chisale said she wants to improve her record to be eligible for global title fights.
She has fought 11 fights, won 10 and lost once since turning professional in 2015.
“I have never fought her before and I don’t know her style, but I am ready. I believe in myself. I have been training hard since I returned from South Africa in January. I am in good shape and I promise Malawians a great fight and a knockout,” said the 20-year-old welterweight boxer.
Abdala, who turned professional in 2017, has fought seven times, won six and drew once.
“She [Abdala] got a good record from the information I got, but I promise to ruin her record come Sunday. I have been working very hard in the gym and also doing the rope,” said Chisale.
On the same bill, African Boxing Union (ABU) champion Anisha Bashiri will fight Mary Musole from Zambia in the main fight.
“I can’t disappoint and people should expect the best from me. My game is on another level and I am ready for the fight,” said Bashiri who trades under No Pain No Gain boxing stable. n
