A fight involving Malawian budding female boxer, Ellen Simwaka, has been nominated for the “Female Fight of the Year 2017 Award” in South Africa.
Organisers of the South African Boxing Awards 2017, have considered Simwaka’s fight against Simangele Hadebe for the award alongside other two separate fights.
Other nominated fights are those between Unathi Myekeni and Asandiswa, and Noni Tenge’s bout against Prudends Mapule Ngubane.
The nomination is a consolation for Simwaka who lost to Hadebe on September 9 last year at Memorial Centre, Kagiso, in South Africa.
The 20-year-old bantamweight boxer, who is back in the country for a breather,told the media that she was thrilled by the nomination.
“It was one of my best fights. Even though I lost in controversial circumstances, I was given rare reviews on Sabc television. I am sure the fight is going to win an award,” Simwaka said.
