Mbeya boxer wins contest

MBEYA’s professional Cruiserweight boxer, Paschal Ndomba, has proved he is keen on enjoying success at the domestic level after registering a knockout victory over

Paschal Ndomba

Steven Mwakitwange in a non-title fight that took place in the region early this week.

The bouts, which were coordinated by renowned former professional boxer Omary Yazidu and organised by Mbeya-based hotel, aimed at giving up-and-coming professional boxers in the country a platform to showcase their talents and eventually seek success in the sport.

Ndomba was too strong to Mwakitwange in the fight that was scheduled for four rounds and was supervised by referee, Joseph Anan.

It also turned out to be a good day for Frank Monga, who commanded a Technical Knockout (TKO) win over Asa Nsajigwa in the third round of the Flyweight bout that was scheduled for four rounds and refereed by Anan.

A four-round, Super Welterweight bout pitting Kikunio Mwakitwange against Peter Lucas ended with the former commanding a TKO win in the last round.

The day’s only bout involving female boxers saw Rehema Msangi register TKO win over Jannet Moses in the second round of the Flyweight bout that was scheduled for four rounds as well.

Ndomba’s victory has seen him improve his record to 18 wins (16 knockouts), seven losses (five knockouts) and two draws.

In his last six bouts, he has won four and suffered defeats in the remaining bouts.
Ndomba was equally impressive in his previous non-title bout against Aman Chinola in Ruvuma last month, in which the Mbeya boxer commanded a TKO win.

He presently occupies the sixth position in the list of 14 boxers in the Cruiserweight division in Tanzania and has been positioned 383rd in the list of 1,777 boxers in the division in the world as per the Boxrec ratings.
