Boxer Ben Muziyo holds Zambia’s dwindling medal hopes today when he returns the ring for a third time at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
This follows Saviour Kombe failure to qualify the 400 meters mens finals after losing in Tuesdays semifinal heats in Glasgow.
Kombe finished seventh in the third semifinal heat as Zambia’s medal hopes continued to fade at the ongoing Commonwealth Games that end on August 3.
The scenario was the same on the courts where Chongo Mulenga and Ngosa Chonga were eliminated from the Badminton doubles on Tuesday.
Chongo was also eliminated from the mens singles on Wednesday while Mulenga tumbled from the same event on Tuesday.
And so Middleweight Muziyo who is Zambia lone boxer out of five still standing enters the ring at 22h15 to fight Cedric Olivier of Mauritius in a quarterfinal bout.
Meanwhile, Zambia’s final hope for medals will come in the 400X 4 meters mens relay when the heats start on August 1.
Zambia has one just one medal from eight events entered.
The only medal so far has come in Judo where Boas Munyonga won a Bronze medal in the 81Kg category.
