Wanda Bruce, Manager for defeated American female boxer Belinda Laracuente who lost to Esther Phiri apologised for un-sportsmanship remarks, made Saturday.
Both Bruce and Laracuente said unpalatables after the lose on a split-points decesion of 2-1 to Esther in an eight round bout. Bruce who was in Laracuente’s corner during the GBU Super-Feather-weight title bout at Woodlands stadium said the two became emotional after the result was announced. She was speaking to ZNBC Sports in an interview. Bruce said the bursts during a ZNBC TV interview shortly after the contest were uncalled for. Laracuente said she will grab the belt from Esther by a convincing knock-out during a re-match set for March next year. She commended Zambians for the support during her stay. GBU Match Commissioner, Caleb Kuya has commended the three judges and the referee for their professional conduct during the contest. Refering to the out-bursts of Laracuente and Bruce after the fight, Kuya said in Boxing, a Challenger must convincingly win a champion, to grab the belt.

  1. Esther better be prepared next time and knock Belinda into the middle of next week to avoid any doubt as to who is queen of the ring on that day!!I trust Esther will make the effort to watch Mayweather v Hatton…she might learn a trick or two!

  6. Ba Easy(5),at which point did Cobra deserve the title “excellency”? Pollution control on our roads will only be a reality when the relevant legislation is enacted.For so long as these funny cars sold per kg are dumped in Africa/Zambia we stand no chance.You should see the smoke emissions from a 3 year old Toyota EXIV!!I’ve never heard “your excellency” talk about ozone layer depletion/Kyoto Protocols etc….or is he more worried about getting into Plot 1 first??!!

  8. I was just going through my posting in #3. It should have read “I did not see Ester winning that match”.
