Tanzanian pugilist Sadiki Momba is expected to arrive in the country today ahead of the eight round non-title contest against Malawi's junior welterweight champion Osgood Kayuni.
The two will feature in the main supporting bout on the bill of World Boxing Forum middleweight title fight involving champion Agness Mtimaukanena and challenger Happiness Nkhoma penciled in for Saturday at Nankhaka Stadium.
Tasamoti Boxing Promotions owner Tawonga Tembo said matchmakers had confirmed that Momba left Tanzania on Tuesday and he would be in Lilongwe today.
"This is very encouraging because it will allow us to hold weigh-in session on Friday," she said.
Momba, 25, has fought 15 fights winning 12, losing once and drawing twice while Kayuni has 24 fights under his belt with 21 wins two draws and one loss.
Tembo also announced that Mtimaukanena , who has been preparing for the bout in Zimbabwe, would also arrive in the country today.
The promoter said she was delighted with WBF's support and the response from boxing fraternity.
"So far, WBF official Emmanuel Mlundwa is also expected to grace the fight and he might be one of the officials on the table. Among other guests we will have Chris Malunga from Zambia's Oriental Boxing Quarries," she said.
Tembo also thanked Malawi Police for supporting the fight after promising to transport the ring from Blantyre to Lilongwe.
Lilongwe promoters hire a ring from Blantyre because the one in the Capital City is unusable.
"The Malawi Police has been helpful because they have given us the venue apart from transporting the ring to Lilongwe," she said.
