Northern Region boxers smile at last


Northern Region based boxers can now afford a smile as the long awaited boxing ring has arrived in the region.

Speaking after receiving the ring, Malawi Amateur Boxing Association (MABA) regional General secretary Mike Lyson Zgambo said this is a good development to all boxing lovers.

“During our campaign before being elected into office, me and my Chairperson Happy Kumwenda we promised that the first thing in office is to bring the ring here, and today here we are witnessing the arrival of the ring, now what next is to raise funds for a boxing tournament in the region.

“The ring will be used across the region and lucky enough it’s a movable thing that we can take it to all districts, we are talking of Chitipa, Karonga, Rumphi, NkhataBay, Mzimba and the island of Likoma,”

“And the ring will also assist to identify the talent from the region and send qualified boxers to Zone 5 tournament scheduled in December and Malawi is the host,” said Zgambo.

In his remarks one of the boxers Mc Dad Thipa said it’s about time to bring boxing back in the north.

“When these people were voted into office we trusted them that they will work hard to bring joy into our faces, the coming of the ring to us is great achievement that the previous committee failed to implement, yes today we are happy indeed,” he said.

Thipa added by asking the committee to arrange and organize a tournament.

About three years the northern region has failed to conduct boxing events due to lack of boxing ring after the previous venue Obrigado leisure Park was sold.
