Catherine Phiri has lost her WBC World female bantamweight title.

Catherine on Sunday lost to Mexican Mariana Trejo in Mexico City on split points decision.

There was not to be a case of lightening striking twice in Mexico for Catherine where she won the WBC title in January, 2016 following a technical knockout victory over Yazmin Rivas.

The defeat is Catherine’s second of her 13 fight career since losing to Christina McMahon two fights ago in May, 2015 in Lusaka on points.

    • Can’t be on Sunday, what time, should be Saturday.
      She can loose, no publicity, only stories we hear are about PF.

    • The Queen never leaves her throne! It was a tactical mistake for the Zambia team to agree to fight in Mexico. I am sure the new Champ will avoid Cathy at all costs.

    • My review of the fight is that she was robbed. Mariana was battered and bloodied and worn-out. It could have been a case of home-ground biased judges. It is not correct to dethrone a Champion like that. Her team should appeal against the decision. Cathy dominated the fight and had a clear lead in majority (if not all) of the rounds.

  2. We can’t blame Catherine as this was predicted from the start. When you have an illegal government that is failing its people in all areas of life you cannot surely expect the same people to effectively represent the country. The quicker we get rid of failures like lungu the better.

    • Ba Nez (best blogger 2026) surely even the loose of Cathy you blame it on Lungu? Now you are exhibiting that its not because Lungu is illegal (as you usually put it) but simply

    • George here is a logical example. Say you are father who is a failure in life and everything you do you fail at it. The only achievement is something that you corruptly gained. Meanwhile your kid looks upto you and learns from you. Now should the kid go onto fail who would you blame?

  4. Keep fighting young girl, these things happen, you win some and lose some just like your opponent’s record says. We are proud of you and will support you to the hilt.
    And by the way, just ignore the UPNDonkeys, they don’t like easterners at all no matter what nice things they say to you. I am not kidding, HH himself made it clear that he does not like easterners by targeting Chief Justice Mambilima and ECZ Chairman Esau Chulu simply for being easterners. Deny it NEZ and your fellow donkeys, didn’t you and chief donkey hh describe easterners as corrupt finkubala eaters? Even bemba are in the same boat when donkeys meet in their inner circles which exclude GBM.

    • Kikiki surely I must have put you under stress go you to resort to tribal remarks and cooking up lies. The only ones discussing tribe here are pro pf. When I say that pf cadres like you are ignorant dogs I am called rude. However can you blame me ? If you act like a dog you might as well be one. Keep barking while we fight to make positive progress. Everyone irrespective of tribe is feeling pfs failure in managing the economy. Your own relatives wherever they come from not that I care, are suffering. You are probably settles abroad enjoying life while supporting a party that has led to starvation of your own relatives. Please wake up Bro. No need to be deliberately ignorant. Am sure you are old enough to reason

  6. Leave Edgar alone this is sports Catherine fought well she lost on a split point decision it has nothing to do with politics, even your analogy of having a failure as a father is relative a lot of people come from parents who didn’t achieve a certain level of success in life yet their children used that perceived failure as a platform to launch their own success so lay off the politics and be objective am sure the cadre in you is capable of some level of objectivity not just pandering to the gallery for reasons known to you alone

      I am one of those who raised from rags to riches.. My mum was not educated BUT she encouraged me to purse education seriously.

    • Kanjimaano you clearly didn’t heed your mother’s advice because if you did you would know to pursue education and not purse it
