Aging pugilist Perpetual Mkandawire refuses to throw in the towel; he is back on Sunday featur¬ing in the main supporting bout on the undercard of Alick Mwenda and Silas Mandeya bill.
At 46 years, Perpetual still thinks he has the strength and skill to silence Hajison Mkoka, whom he will meet in a six rounds non-title contest at Motel Paradise.
'Ankolo Pansi pa Bedi' as Perpetual is famously called said he should not be pushed into retirement because he still has many things to offer in boxing.
"I will show you on Sunday that I still have strength in my legs. Besides that I want fans to enjoy my style. You may think that I am old but I am highly skilful and intelligent. I will use my brains to teach this one a lesson or two," he said.
Perpetual said he should never be regarded as a spent force as he was working in the gym to write another chapter in his boxing career.
"Holyfield has done it and what can stop me from doing the same. I want to become a first old fighter to win a belt in Malawi," he said.
However, Mkoka said he would treat the old timer as his punch bag.
"He is old enough to be my granny. I will beat him severely and he will announce his retirement," he said.
Meanwhile, both Mwenda and Zimbabwean boxer are set to impress during the eight rounds non-title international duel.
Besao Boxing Promotions certified both boxers fit for the showdown.
