Exodus Boxing Stables Promotions Manager Antony Mwamba revealed this at a press briefing in Lusaka today. Best Western Plus are the sponsors of the fight and will accommodate boxing icon, Esther.

Mwamba expressed sadness on how the previous WIBA/ WBF Unification ABU welterweight match was handled.He said the stable respected the referee’s decision and hoped that the rematch between Esther and Sandra would be satisfactory.

Meanwhile, the Stable has unveiled a K700, 000 budget for the encounter. And Lusaka Grand Hotel Management has pledged a sum of K150, 000 towards the bout and urged other companies to come on board to support the fight.

On 22nd May, this year, the two boxers locked horns although the fight was stopped in the third round when Sandra was punched in the face causing excess bleeding resulting in a technical draw.

The outcome however, did not please Esther’s side, the Exodus Boxing Stables Promotions.The dissatisfaction made Exodus Boxing Stables Promotions to appeal to the World Boxing Council which has since set a rematch date.

  1. I still cannot wrap my head around the idea of seeing two women punching each other senseless inside a ring, to cheering crowds. I can’t say the same about men because men have historically done some very stupid and senseless things.
