The win has pushed Muziyo into the semi-finals.

Muziyo’s fight which lasted only 50 seconds is apparently the shortest boxing bout at the 2014 Commonwealth games.

And Muziyo has told ZNBC’s Katwishi Bwalya in Glasgow that Zambia should expect at least silver from him on Friday.

Zambia has only minted a bronze medal in Judo and Muziyo’s win is enough confirmation that Zambia is in for a second medal.

Meanwhile , former world champion Samuel Matete has called for adequate preparation of athletes before they are exposed to international competitions.

Matete further says the Zambia Amateur Athletics Association should put up a serious programme that will help indentify talent and develop athletes into future champions.

The former 4-hundred meters hurdles world champion said on ZNBC’s morning live news programme, that it is disappointing that Zambia’s runners have failed to mint any silver ware at the ongoing commonwealth games in Glasgow.

The entire contingent of Zambian runners at the Commonwealth games has been sent packing after a poor showing.
