Muziyo, Silungwe power to quarters

DIANA CHIPEPO, Gold Coast, Australia
A SECOND round knockout was all middleweight Ben Muziyo needed to cruise to the quarter-finals as boxers remain Zambia’s hope for medals at the Commonwealth Games.
Light welterweight Nkumbu Silungwe also progressed to the quarter-finals at the expense of Edward Williams of Wales.
Muziyo needed only a few seconds in round one to take Dominica’s Roy Cooke’s measure before spending the remaining minutes pacing him around the ring as he closed the show with a second-round knockout before a capacity crowd at Oxenfrd Studios.
