ZBF honour Sata

MWILA NTAMBI, Kitwe
ZAMBIA Boxing Federation (ZBF) has organised a boxing tournament to honour former President Michael Sata.
ZBF president Thomas Chileshe said in Kitwe yesterday that the event is set for Lusaka on October 28, the day Sata passed on last year.
Chileshe said Sata was passionate about youth development and it is only right for ZBF to honour him by striving to identify and develop boxers.
“We are working with the corporate world such as 711 and Oriental Boxing Promotion to organise this event. It will be an international event that will be held at 711 in Kabulonga in Lusaka, “he said.
Chileshe said boxers from Zimbabwe have already been written to and are expected to participate.
He said October 28 had been recognised on the ZBF calendar and the tournament will be held annually.
Boxers Ben Muziyo, Emmanuel Ngoma, David Mwale and Evaristo Mulenga among others will step in the ring.
