Malawi Boxing Association (Maba) has reportedly suggested a meeting with the National Professional Boxing Committee (NPBC) over the proposed split of the two warring boxing entities.
The committeeâ€™s president Lonzoe Zimba confirmed on Monday that Maba wrote them suggesting the meeting through the brokers of the talks, the Malawi National Council of Sports.
â€œMaba had a meeting on September 1 when they resolved to write the council to call for another meeting with us. We have a copy of the letter which they have sent to the council, so that we can agree on the split and our respective jurisdiction,â€ Zimba explained.
Lack of a world unified boxing body put Maba and the professional wing on war path. The committee challenged that they cannot operate under Maba but deserve direct affiliation to the World Boxing Council. Maba belongs to the International Association of Amateur Boxing (Aiba), Zimba argued.
Maba general secretary Arthur Nanthuru was not available to confirm writing to the committee while Maba vice-president Henry Sakala said he was in the dark about latest boxing developments.
