Boxer Agnes Mtimaukanenaâ€™s fans will have a chance to see her fight after seven months as she faces Zimbabwean Fortunate Chizaro on Sunday.
Chizaro arrived in the country on Wednesday ahead of the six-round non-title bout slated for Motel Paradise in Blantyre.
The ladiesâ€™ fight will be the main curtain-raiser for the international fight between Chimwemwe Chiotcha and Zimbabwean Brian Mwando.
Mtimaukena said she is ready to go back into the ring and promised her fans victory.
â€œIt has been a long time since I last fought. I cannot wait to go back into the ring. I have been training hard for the past months and I deserve some ring time,â€ she said.
Chizaro said in a telephone interview from Blantyre that she is here to end Mtimaukanenaâ€™s unbeaten run.
â€œI understand she has never lost a fight in her career. That will be history on Sunday. That is all I can say for now,â€ said Chizaro.
Organisers of the bouts, Super Magic Boxing Promotions, say they have organised the Mtimaukenena bout as consolation to her fans after her highly publicised fight in September failed to take place when her opponent did not show up.
â€œWe want to show boxing fans that we are organised and that what happened last time was just a result of communication breakdown,â€ said the stableâ€™s CEO Daud Chikwanje, who thanked Pharmanova for taking care of the expenses of Mtimaukanenaâ€™s fights.
Mtimaukanena is a brand ambassador for Pharmanova.
