ZAMTEL yesterday donated K250,000 to Oriental Quarries Boxing Promotion (OQBP) towards hosting of the World Boxing Council (WBC) double title bouts slated for Government Complex in Lusaka on March 15.
Company corporate communications manager Kennedy Mambwe expressed hope that the money donated will assist OQBP meet logistics needed to host the two WBC title fights.
Catherine takes on Pia Mazelanik of Germany in the WBC women’s bantamweight inter-continental title bout while Charles Manyuchi will fight former Africa Boxing Union (ABU) champion Patrick Allotey from Ghana for the WBC welterweight inter-continental title.
OQBP operations manager Christopher Malunga commended Zamtel for once again coming to the aid of his stable that has been left with a budget deficit of K248,000.
Malunga said he was confident that the stable will manage to raise the needed K753, 000 to stage the fights.
He said Catherine would go on to fight Susie Ramadan of Australia for WBC bantamweight title should she overcome Mazelanik.
