Kenyan boxers post mixed results in Maputo – The Star Kenya

Kenya’s national boxing team, Hit Squad, posted mixed results on the opening day of the Africa Boxing Championship in Maputo, Mozambique.

The team’s campaign got off to a torrid start after Amina Martha lost her bantamweight preliminary bout to Egyptian Ayyad Yomna Ahmed.

Boniface Mugunde, however, brushed the debacle aside to register an emphatic 5-0 win over Raul Obama Mangue of Equitorial Guinea on points.

Mugunde will now meet Mohamed Ahmed Abdullahi in the quarterfinal slated for Wednesday afternoon.

Team captain, Nick ‘Commander’ Okoth cruised into the quarters without stepping into the ring after his opponent from Sudan Wadah Mahmoud failed to show up.
