Catherine Phiri says she’s optimistic she can reclaim her WBC title.
Catherine relinquished her hold on WBC World female bantamweight title following a split points defeat to Mexican Mariana Trejo in Mexico City on April 2.
“It was a hard fight because she used her exp[experience and prepared well,” Catherine said.
“She is a tough boxer. Nevertheless, I will not give up, I will reclaim the title.
“I know i failed to fulfil the promise to the fans by not successfully defending the belt.
“I will bounce back and make amends for it.”
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.
