Kenya’s Victor Wesonga trounced Tanzania’s Ramadhani Ally in the East and Central Africa Professional Boxing Commission fight held at Charter Hall in Nairobi on Saturday night.
Wesonga who serves in the National Police Service started the first round on a shaky ground receiving jabs from his Tanzanian opponent Ally.
Ally took advantage of his height throwing jabs at Wesonga, causing his instability.
Wesonga however regained his composure in the second round making use of every opportunity to unleash his wrath on his opponent.
It is in round three of the match that Wesonga cornered his opponent using bouts of blow.
Unable to contain the match, Ally threw in the towel forcing the referee to count him out of the match.
Speaking after the match, Wesonga accredited his win to consistency and proper training.
“I knew I had to work hard in order to win this belt. I told myself that my opponent will not be throwing stones while I throw blows in the ring,” said Wesonga.
The 25 year old police officer says that his next big challenge is to retain the belt which is his first ever win since he turned pro.
George Onyango also beat Austin Wafula in the newly unveiled National Belt title.
Onyango’s win however did not come easily as Wafula also kept throwing jabs at him that caught his face.
KPBC Chairman Reuben Ndolo who attended the event praised the boxers for their agility and consistency in keeping the boxing industry vibrant.
“I am glad for what I have seen today. Because this I know is what will keep the industry alive. And as the new officials of KPBC, we promise not to let you down,” said Ndolo.
KPBC has also pledged to schedule monthly matches for the professional boxers in a bid to empower them and expose their talents.
The event saw a total of eight bouts played, five male and three females.
