Boxer Jobson Adams is on Sunday set to face Mzuzu-based boxer Laston Kayira in an eight-round non-title bout at Obrigado Leisure Park in Mzuzu in a lightweight category.
“Adams says that he wants to teach Kayira how to fight. He said young boxers such as Kayira should be taught how to fight practically. We have, therefore, decided to give him that chance to showcase his potential,” promoter Baghdad Mwamlima said yesterday.
According to Mwamlima, the bout has attracted supporting bouts involving Mwawi Kamanga, Amos Kayira, Patrick Kayira, Secret Chirwa, Israel Banda and Clifford Yahaya.
“As usual, we will have other bouts. We cannot have one bout; hence, the incorporation of other supporting bouts. We shall also have a bout between Mary Chinkwanthi and Ellen Simwaka,” he said.
The bout will be Kayira’s seventh professional fight. He has drawn two, won three and lost one to Malani Kayuni.
Kayira, 24, is currently trained by coach Gabriel Kondowe.
“I am happy that sponsors have finally come to sponsor this bout. Currently, I am training with Kondowe so that I silence Adams. I want people to notice why I have been ranked as a professional,” said Kayira on Tuesday.
On his part, Adams said he has intensified his preparations so that he knocks out Kayira before round six.
“I have been in boxing for some time, Kayira is very young; it will take years for him to match me,” he bragged.
