Opening up the year, Superior Boxing Promotions organized an eight round non-title bout on Sunday. Crispin Moliyati underlined his credentials as he defeated Laston Kayiya, a Mzuzu based boxer.
After dominating the bout, it was clear that Moliyati deserved victory. This made the judges work easier leading to Moliyati winning by unanimous decision.
No doubt, Kayira showed aggression in the last stages as he was searching for a killer punch, but to no avail.
“I knew it was going to be an easy bout for me. I have proved that I am a good boxer. It was training bout for me because I want to reclaim my belt from Salimu Chazama,” says Moliyati in an interview after the bout.
Kayira said he was striving for a rematch. He notes that the year has not started well for him and promises to challenge Moliyati again. Nonetheless, drama arose after Robert Kachiza failed to show up in the main supporting bout against Alexander Likande.
The previous year also sees Kachiza as a headliner for the erroneous reasons after being knocked out in the second round by a Zimbabwean boxer at the same venue.
Japhet Majekete, Director of Superior Boxing promotions was astounded with the turnout of the fans.
Majekete had this to say “We are very impressed that fans came in large numbers to watch the bout despite financial difficulties during this period.
As Superior Boxing Promotions, we promise boxing fans that we will organize more exciting bouts this year,”
