THE World Boxing Council (WBC) has ordered for a rematch between Zambia’s Catherine Phiri and Irish Christina MacMahon.
Oriental Quarries Boxing Promotions (OQBP) Operations Manager Christopher Malunga told a media briefing in Lusaka on Monday that the WBC board that reviewed the match found the three judges that adjucate the fight in Lusaka wanting.
He said the judges wrongly awarded points to MacMahon who was announced winner via unanimous points.
The world boxing mother body has ruled that the match should take place before 30 November 2015.
Malunga also disclosed that Catherine will have a non title fight with Miriam Tshabalala of South Africa before the re-match with Christina.
And Catherine’s coach Mike Zulu has declared Catherine ready for the re-match.
The winner of the rematch will automatically qualify to fight Jasmine Rivers of Mexico for the WBC gold championship.
