Tanzanian boxing sensation Karim Mandonga has yet again suffered a defeat at the hands of Mula Jr in Zanzibar.
Mula was declared the winner through a unanimous decision from the six rounds bout.
Mandonga who had earlier maintained that he will knock out Mula in the second round finally congratulated him.
“Sina mengi ya kusema baada ya kupoteza pambano la leo nampa shukrani nyingi mdogo wangu wanamuita Mulla wa Zanzibari amefanya vizuri katika mchezo wa boxing, mchezo hauna chuki mabondia wanashindwa kupeana big up kwa hiyo mimi nimemu appreciate nimefurahia tumecheza vizuri tumemaliza raundi sita ameshinda Mula kwa hiyo ni vizuri zaidi” said Mandonga.
Mandonga further fired at his critics who believe that he has lost his mojo since he gained weight.
According to Mandonga, that came with being successful and nothing more.
“Ni jambo jema kwa sababu ukiona mtu amenenepa kwake mafanikio yamefika vizuri kwa hiyo at mimi Mandonga mtu kazi mafanikio kwangu yamefika vizuri” continued Mandonga.
Mandonga was also unapologetic for his pre-match statement statement that he will quit boxing if floored.
He maintained that he’s the godfather of boxing and was still actively involved with new endorsements in the offing.
Mandonga added that a rematch is in the offing to determine the overall winner.
Mandonga Is A Worthy Opponent
While acknowledging his win, Mula admitted that Mandonga was a worthy opponent.
Mula maintained that he had to employ new tactics to outwit Mandonga.
“Huyu braza ana nguvu huyu braza anataka akili nyingi ukimfuata mchezo wake ukitumia nguvu atakuumiza kwa hiyo mimi nilikuwa natumia akili nyingi kama unavyoona natembea napiga ngumi moja mpaka nimescore nimeshinda nashkuru…Huyu ni bondia tena bondia strong itabidi tuonge ukweli” stated Mula.
Mula further shared his optimism ahead of their rematch at a later date.
Recently, Mandonga was barred from boxing activities pending medical examination.
It was in the wake of Mandonga’s back to back defeat by Kenya’s Wanyonyi and Uganda’s Golola.
Mandonga later termed the suspension a witch-hunt from his enemies.
