Government has congratulated Catherine Phiri and Charles Manyuchi for retaining their World Boxing Council (WBC) silver bantamweight and international welterweight tiles, respectively.
Catherine knocked out Bukiwe Nonina of South Africa while Manyuchi defeated Devis Casseres of Colombia at Government Complex on Saturday.
“This victory adds to yet another success after the Zambia national soccer team made it to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
“It is heartening that our sportsmen and women have continued to show high levels of discipline, commitment, determination and patriotism to bring glory to the country,” said Joseph Katema, Chief Government spokesperson, in a statement yesterday.
