About 10 amateur champions, who will represent Malawi at the Zone VI games in Zambia next month, will curtain-raise the international non-title fight between Chimwemwe Chiotcha and Zimbabwean Brian Mwando on Sunday.
Super Magic Boxing Promotions chief executive officer, Daud Chikwanje, on Tuesday said they want to give the youngsters a platform to prepare for the games.
Normally, amateurs are not allowed to curtain-raise professional bouts.
â€œWe have compromised the procedures so that the amateurs can get a feel of a huge atmosphere which they will face in Zambia,â€ said Chikwanje.
He said Mwando arrived in the country a fortnight ago and the two boxers have intensified training.
â€œThere have been complaints by fans on poor performance of international boxers. Get assured that Mwando is in good shape and is working hard to get a win against Chiotcha,â€ said Chikwanje.
This is a rematch after Chiotcha got a seventh round knockout win in their first meeting last year.
