With convincing knockout wins in his three professional bouts, Limbani Masamba now wants a national title and has challenged Mchinji-based Charles Misanjo for the welterweight title.
Misanjo has been holding the title for the past two years, but Masamba says Misanjoâ€™s time to keep the title in the Central Region is over.
Masamba is booming with confidence following his second knockout victory over rival Malani Kayuni on Sunday.
â€œI think time is right for me to now go for the title and I hereby challenge Misanjo for his title. He has had it for two years and its time it came to Blantyre.
â€œHe is keeping it in a maize granary in Mchinji while we have a proper boxing office for medals and belts, so Misanjo wherever you are, I want you within the next month or so,â€ declared Masamba.
Misanjo said he is ready to face Masamba.
â€œIt really does not feel right to be keeping this title a year after winning it. There has been no one to challenge me, so I welcome his challenge,â€ he said.
Namisonga Boxing Promotions, where Masamba belongs, said they will arrange the fight between the two.
â€œWe will host it either at the end of September or early October. We would have done it early next month, but one of our top boxers [Mussa Ajidu] is fighting an international bout on September 2, so we want to put our focus on that one first,â€ said the stableâ€™s managing director Charles Nkhoma on Wednesday.
