Professional boxing status skyrockets

PROFESSIONAL boxing is fast regaining its glorious past with pugilist Twaha Kiduku among the chief practitioners who are bringing the game to the Promised Land.

Kiduku is once again on global spotlight after defeating Argentinian Victor Hugo on points to claim WBF International Super Walter Weight title on Friday night.

The 10-round bout climaxed the Mo Green Vitasa Night at Jamhuri Stadium in Morogoro where a number of undercard bouts were staged before the main.

The two boxers stood firm in all rounds resisting to fall on the ground forcing the panel of judges to declare Kiduku as a winner after outpointing his opponent at the end of the 10th round.

It is another success story for Kiduku who is doing well in this sector thereby putting the country on the world face courtesy of international titles he holds.

Speaking after the end of the thrilling bouts, Kiduku hailed his opponent for good fight while admitting that he has never encountered an easy boxing match.

“He is a good fighter… whenever I tried to floor him, he resisted. I really enjoyed the bout and I have never come across a simple opponent in my career,” he said.

In a Super Middle Weight match, Dullah Mbabe saw off Limbani Lano barely in the first round as the latter surrendered after receiving strong drizzling punches from Mbabe forcing the referee to end the fight and save Lano from further punishment.

Also, household name boxer Karim Mandonga cherished a TKO win over Said Mbelwa in the sixth round.

Mandonga’s victory sparked celebrations at the venue with his supporters cheering him for the excellent job.

He was not short of words after the success praising himself for the wonderful feat insisting that he is fully fit to engage any boxer who stands on his path.
