Agnes Mtimaukanena-Mwando turned her welterweight non-title international bout against Kenyan boxer Joyce Awino on Friday night into a one-sided affair at Robin’s Park in Blantyre where she earned unanimous points decision victory.
This is the second time for the former World Boxing Federation (WBF ) light middleweight champion to beat Awino this year as she did it again at the same venue in July.
However, Mtimaukanena-Mwando could have done better this time around to salvage her first ever knock-out.
Judges Lovemore Katanda, Nginjale Chitenje and Dyson Luya score 80-72 for the 23-year-old Malawian, who has enhanced her record eight wins, a draw and two losses.
So far, the country’s prominent female boxer has won all her four fights since she returned into the ring after giving birth to a baby boy this year..
On Friday, it looked obvious Mtimaukanena-Mwando was destined to win the fight but it could have made sense if she could do it through a knockout considering that her opponent was fond of letting her guard open for the better part of the eight-round match.
And for a boxer, who is preparing for a World Boxing Council (WBC) title bout against more muscular and experienced Zambian pugilist Lorita Muzeya sometime in 2016, she admitted she needs to pull up her socks. in terms
In supporting bouts, Mtimaukanena-Mwando’s husband Briane knocked out Mwayi Kamanga in the second round while Emmanuel Chimanga earned unanimous points decision victory over Ernest Chipanda. Lameck Chikoti beat Yohane Banda.
