South African boxer Sandra Almeida has withdrawn from next month’s unification rematch bout with Zambia’s Esther Phiri.
Sandra said she needed more time to fight Esther and asked to be excused from the bout.
And the WIBA has since appointed 35-year-old South African Juli Tshabala as Esther next opponent in the international unifications fight.
Exodus boxing promotions manager Anthony Mwamba said the fight will take place at government complex in Lusaka.
And Esther said she is ready to take on Juli and ensure the belts remain in Zambia.
And Juli warned Esther that she should be ready for a knock out.
