EXODUS Stables executive director Anthony Mwamba says Esther Phiri will produce the best boxing skills ever seen in Zambia following her return to the ring.

Mwamba, who is also Esther’s manager, said in Lusaka yesterday that his boxer started training four months ago.
“She has been doing very well in training and I am confident she is going to bring even more honours to the country. We want to show people that boxing is our career and we can achieve a lot,” Mwamba said.
He said the Women International Boxing Association (WIBA) light welterweight champion will soon be back to her best level and will be ready to face any opponent.
Mwamba said there was a lot of misinformation surrounding Esther’s future after she took a break from boxing.
“This does not surprise us considering the status of Esther as a world champion. We would like to thank the Zambia Professional Boxing and Wrestling Control Board and our fans that have remained unyieldingly in their support,” he said.
He also paid tribute to the medical personnel for their professional approach to the matter.
“We wish to apologise unreservedly if they felt injured in any way arising from the speculations and misinformation during Esther’s absence from the ring,” he said.
On Friday, the ZPBWCB granted Esther a boxing licence after medical tests showed that she is fit to fight.
