    • Ester just messed herself up getting involved with an OLD RUG, not only old enough to be her Father but one that’s been Married and Divorced 6 times already.

      Fill sorry for her, she had an excellent career, but doubt she will regain that. An example of a career wasted.

  2. Esther should by all means not allowed to fight Catherine the young girl I have a feeling she wants to prove a point. Remember what happened when the late Lottie and Chisander Muttie fought even their in England refused to let happen but mad people in Zambia pushed for the fight the out come was not good. Please do not let that happen to the young girl protect her.

    Boxer Esther Phiri says she has decided to come out of retirment and continue with her career.
    The light welterweight IBO/WIBA world champion hung up her gloves unceremoniously shortly after a knock-out victory over Zimbabwe’s Monalisa Sibanda at Mulungushi International Conference centre in February 2012.
    Esther, who had a nine-year successful boxing career before retiring, said she was forced to hang up her gloves after false medical reports about her.

    • Esther, to be given a false medical report is a serious thing. You told the nation you quit boxing because you were told your medical results were bad, but then later you decided to test for HIV at 4 different medical facilities, and you have found that you are healthy, contrary to what you were earlier told. My question is, why didn’t you sue, or still why can’t you sue the people who gave you false results. Don’t you think that was malicious, if indeed the report was false?

  6. To sue may just open a Pandora s box in my veiw. I want to assume that there is no smoke without fire. we can speculate however . perhaps it was one of his boyfriend(s) who tested positive. in medical language such a couple is called a discordant couple. so Ester with her humble education just also assumed hers was also positive. She was advised that even then she still had the option for a repeat test after 3 month after which she was expected to sero convert since she had been exposed somehow. And it was that confirmatory test which made come out in the open because it turned out negative!

    • Which 3 months naimwe!
      There is no speculation here! She tested HIV positive in 2012
      And retired. That was her last fight. It’s now 2 years and she claims to test negative
      Can’t you smell the coffee? Umwaice napola. Leave her alone.

  7. Who knows maybe she is still HiV positive. Do you know that she has money to bribe for the better HIV results? I smell a rat.

  8. Anthony, don’t think of arranging a fight between Esther and Catherine. Nothing special to have the two fight, instead let them fight others outside Zambia. Do not over look my advise.
