But Nkhoma will be the countryâ€™s second female professional boxing licence holder after Agnes Mtimaukanena who got hers from a Tanzanian body a few months ago.
Nkhoma will be among the first applicants to go through the new World Boxing Council (WBC) rule that requires mandatory HIV and Aids testing before obtaining their licences.
MPBC president Lonzoe Zimba told Nation Online on Tuesday that Nkhoma is among seven applicants. The other applicants are Alick Gogoda, Salim Chazama, Emmanuel Chadza, Dan Lombola, Robert Kachiza and Mussa Mkwanda.
“We have already notified all the new applicants that this is the route they will have to go through to obtain their licences. All the 28 professional boxers who are already in our books have also been tested and they are all HIV-negative,” said Zimba.
Once she obtains the licence, Nkhoma will engage Mukane in an eight-round non-title bout that will curtain-raise Mtimaukanenaâ€™s WBC African title bout against Kenyan Susan Adezo, according to Ngumi Boxing Promotions manager Steve Msiska.
