against co-challenger, and fellow countryman,
Badive Badibanga was supposed to take place on
Friday December 11, but was suddenly postponed
for 48 hours when local authorities claimed the
previously planned venue for a political gathering only a few hours
before the first bell.
in the ring, after going through the highly
unusual process of making weight for the fight
twice, Tshimanga Katompa wasted little time and
proved a level above Badibanga, winning by
second round stoppage.
