Manyuchi wins silver title

MANYUCHI

DIANA MUTAKAFIMBO, Lusaka
CHARLES Manyuchi on Friday evening inched closer to boxing greatness when he grabbed the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) welterweight silver title against Russia’s Dimitry Mikhaylenko.
“I am very happy that I have won the title. This is a big title and I am going to keep focused so that we can win more as a team,” said Manyuchi after getting the decision in a fight that went the full distance, a rarity for the dexterous Zimbabwean pugilist.
The judges scored 116-114, 118-110, 115-113.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm
