Boxer Peter Mukenuka booted out

STEPHEN PHIRI, Brazzaville
BOXING medal hopeful Peter Mukenuka was yesterday eliminated from the All-Africa Games after losing to Kenneth Katendi of Uganda on points.
Light heavyweight Mukenuka was not aggressive in all the three rounds as Katendi showed his superiority.
Mukenuka’s punches did not threaten the Ugandan, who competed at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
“It is a painful loss. I had a chance to knock him down. I am really sorry for the loss,” a disappointed Mukenuka said.
Mukenuka’s elimination leaves the number of boxers aiming for medals at six.
National boxing team coach Kennedy Kanyanta attributed Mukenuka’s defeat to inexperience.
