  • Description

    Ever since staging the Muhammad Ali/George Foreman heavy-weight championship, Kinshasa has been in the grip of boxing fever. Fans had plenty to shout about on Sunday night (2 March), when two of Zaire's best boxers gave good accounts of themselves against foreign opponents.

    African middleweight champion Mamba Shako was in action against top Italian boxer Armando Lazzari, and had the satisfaction of seeing his opponent throw in the towel after twice being knocked down.

    Earlier, former African welterweight champion Tshinza Mbay beat Brazil's Luiz Rodriguez on points over scheduled sight round bout.
