Kudakwashe Chiwandire

Zimbabwean boxer Kudakwashe ‘Take Money’s Chiwandire failed in her bid to win the WBC Bantamweight Gold title after she lost to holder Yamileth Mercado by points decision in Chihuahua Mexico on Sunday morning.

Chiwandire who had shambolic travelling arrangement, arrived in Mexico on the eve of the fight and plunged into the fight without resting, showed character and endurance to take on her opponent throughout all the ten rounds.

The Zimbabwean boxer had a nightmarish build up to the fight in which she spend the better part of the week in South Africa processing her visa to Mexico spending another day in the Netherlands after her connecting flight was cancelled due to bad weather.

She only arrived in Mexico City on Saturday before taking another flight to the city of Chihuahua for the fight. Despite all these challenges, Chiwandire put up a brave fight taking Mercado all the way only to lose on points decision.
