Boxer Crispin Moliati got his deserved revenge against Malani Kayuni on Sunday at the Lilongwe Community ground.
Moliati, who was the challenger, won by a unanimous points decision after eight rounds of a gruelling encounter.
It was the second time within a month for the two lightweight fighters to face off. The first bout, which Kayuni won controversially, took place in Mzuzu at Obligardo Leisure Centre.
Fast Boxing Promotions general secretary Leonard Metazama described the fight as free and fair.
“We did not have any complaints from the boxers. It was a good fight,” said Metazama.
Moliati said the victory vindicated his claim that he is better than Kayuni.
“I am glad that now I have proved to all that I am a better fighter than him. I am now looking forward to meeting international boxers,” said Moliati, a soldier.
Meanwhile, despite the loss, Kayuni said he has set his eyes on Moliati’s lightweight title.
“I am challenging for his belt now. I am tired of non-title fights. I want to dethrone him as national champion. I will beat and shame him. I am appealing to promoters to come in and sponsor this fight,” said Kayuni who is based in Mzuzu.
However, Moliati was unperturbed.
“He cannot take this belt away from me and no one can. Let promoters come and I will show him who the real boxer is between us,” said Moliati.
In another fight, Salimu Chazama won by TKO in the second round against Bodwin Manda (semi pro fight) whereas John Namata won by points against Abdul Chitepe.
