WBC Orders Catherine Phiri, Zarika Rematch

THE World Boxing Council (WBC) has ordered a rematch between Zambia’s Catherine Phiri and Kenya’s Fatuma Zarika in the WBC Bantamweight title fight.

In a statement issued to Christopher Malunga, who is Catherines Manager, WBC however says that the Zambian boxer has to fight Mexican Yamileth Mercado to determine the challenger for Zarika.

Mercado also lost to Zarika but challenged the decision which has since gone in her favour.

WBC says it will also issue a stern warning to Kenyan authorities for failing to conduct anti-doping test.

Catherine lost to Zarika in a poorly officiated fight which many believe she won.

    But why not strip off the title from the Kenyan? Its not only Catherine but other boxes where also robbed by Kenyan authorities & now we need a neutral ground not Ku Kenyan again, where you have thieves stealing day light robbery.

    Neutral ground should be the way forward.
    I suggest DRC or Malawi

      Seriously, look at the legs? They don’t look feminine.

    Cathy must be advised to move up the weight. The woman ( so called) has the features of a man. Just leave the division to him. Go fight other women. Why risk an injury?
