Mkoka dates Chinthenga in Mzuzu

Hudson Mkoka hopes to wind up the year on a high note, but he knows he has to break sweat to conquer Kenneth Chinthenga on Monday December 26 in Mzuzu.

Obligado Entertainment Centre is the setting for this 10-round non-title light welterweight (64 kilogrammes bout).

The Blantyre-based Mkoka, 32, will be meeting Chinthenga, arguably one of the finest boxers on the domestic scene, for the first time.

“He is no doubt one of the toughest boxers, but I am ready to give a bonus to my fans in Chilomoni with a win,” said Mkoka who trains at Chilomoni Boxing Club.

He has five wins and three losses under his belt. Chinthenga’s records were not readily available as we went to press.

Northern Region Boxing Committee will host the bout while Venda General Dealers are the sponsors.

Benard Mauluka, a Venda official, on Wednesday confirmed that he was among three officials sponsoring the fight.

“We would like to use the bout to promote our business but also to offer fans in Mzuzu some entertainment. People lack recreation activities here whenever Moyale Barracks are not playing. Weekends are dull,” Mauluka said.

He fell short of disclosing the prize money, saying it was subject to the return over the weekend from Tanzania of one of their colleagues behind the bout.
