Malawian boxer Denis Mwale defeated South African opponent Sivenathi Nolawu in the first round of 8 Rounds Junior Welterweight bout.
Mwale produced superb perfomance in the opening minutes of the non-title supporting bout on Sunday evening and his quick punches led Eastern Cape based Nolawu to withdraw the fight after just 59 seconds.
In a post match interview with the Atlas, Mwale said he wasn’t expect to finish the fight in just few seconds and was much happy for the victory.
“It was great to defeat him, I didn’t expect an early victory like this looking how strong and tough my opponent is, he is bigger than me but luckily I managed to win it in the first round of the fight”
“This victory makes me feel happy because it’s what I was looking for, I worked hard for it during training so that I get what has happened today” said Mwale
Mwale who trains under Topbox gym fourways further asked Malawian promoters to consider giving him fights for him to showcase his capabilities on the local scene.
“I just need to be given an opportunity in Malawi because my dream is to come and fight in Malawi so that I build up my record and become top boxer in the world”
Mwale has so far played 12 fights in the rainbow nation, winning nine times and has suffered three defeats.
