THERE is a lot of jubilation in Malawi following Anisha Bashir’s knockout victory over Briton, Samantha Smith in a Commonwealth Boxing Lightweight bout held last night in England.
The international bout was staged at the York Hall in the English capital, London.
Bashir achieved her victory barely 47 seconds into the first round. This is was the Malawian’s eight knockout in her past nine fights.
The bout was broadcast live on Facebook by Sport Bible. It began from 20:00 CAT
Bashir is following the footsteps of her compatriot Isaac Chilemba.
Based in South Africa, Chilemba is a very strong contender for the WBA Lightweight title. His challenge for the international belt will take place in August.
