Pharmanova has challenged Malawin female pugilist Agnes Mtimaukanena to win her forthcoming international title bout against Ugandan Shabilla Namaga on Friday September 28.
This will be the first time for Mtimaukanena to fight since earning the K1.2 million annual sponsorship from Pharmanova some months ago.
The firm's marketing manager Peter Makwana said Pharmanova management expects their brand ambassador to impress.
"She has been given support and it is our wish that she wins the fight. Everyone including the managing director Yusuf Patel has sent forth best their wishes messages," he said.
Mtimaukanena, who won the World Boxing Forum middleweight belt after defeating Susan Andson on points at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe in May, said she knows the challenge that lies ahead of her.
"It is a must win fight for me. I don't want to disappoint my sponsors. I have to repay Pharmanova with a convincing performance. The company has been supportive," said the 20-year-old, who has won four fights since turning professional.
Mtimaukanena will feature during the 'Night of Belts' which will also attract two other title fights. In another international fight Tanzanian Allan Kamote will square up with Malawian Wellington Balakasi for the junior welterweight belt.
The event will also see, Limbani Masamba of Ayaya City Stable contesting for the national welterweight belt against champion Charles Misanjo.
Ngumi Boxing Stable managing director Stephen Mawenzi Msiska was convinced that companies would support the bouts.
"This is the first time for this thing to happen in Malawi. So far the response from the corporate sector looks promising," he said.
