ZBF picks 4 for South Korea trip

MULWANDA LUPIYA, Kitwe
THE Zambia Boxing Federation (ZBF) has selected four pugilists to start preparations for the Women World Boxing Championship slated for
South Korea next month.
National women team coach Elias Kataya, in an interview yesterday, named the four as Jane Mulenga (Nakambala), Sally Mumba (Green Buffaloes), Sarah Mbewe (Mazabuka) and Miriam Daka (Lubengele).
“The boxers have been training at their respective clubs, so they are
in good shape and out of the four only two will be picked to represent
the country,” Kataya said.
And ZBF vice-president Kennedy Mubita said the team will camp at Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) once the money is raised.
He said letters have already been sent to various clubs requesting the
release of the boxers.
Mubita said the International Amateur Boxing Association will cater for the passage of the two boxers.
The tournament will run from November 15 to 25.
