Malawian boxer, Dennis ‘The Menace’ Mwale, who is based in South Africa has said he is improving to make sure that he attracts top fighters in his boxing career, after beating South African Ripfumelo Chikwambana at Time Square in Pretoria on Saturday.
He won the latest bout by unanimous decision, as the three judges who handled the fight scored 60-54 each in the sixth round.
The Menace told a leading local Newspaper: “It was a tough fight but I managed to contain him. He is a good boxer because he also defeated my compatriot Sando Jackson in 2017. I had to win at all cost as I am trying hard to do better to attract bigger fights.”
Meanwhile, on the 27-year-old’s future, boxing pundit Mawenzi Msiska told the Paper that: “Mwale is a good fighter who can stun top boxers but needs to add power to his punches. He could have easily won this fight by knockout but he had no power in his punches.”
The news of the boxer’s progress has also excited Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board spokesperson, Frank Chibisa, who said: “He [Mwale] is a good lad who is always hungry for a fight. He needs support from the country to vie for international belts.”
So far, Mwale, whose home is Mzimba in the Northern Malawi has managed to win six consecutive bouts.
