Catherine Phiri to Defend her WBC Bantamweight Title against Gibisela Tsabalala
August 7, 2016
     
   
   

(AUG 7)  On August 27, 2016, at the Government Complex, in Lusaka, Catherine Phiri, 11-1-0 (5KO), of Lusaka,  is set to defend her WBC World Bantamweight belt against fellow South African Gibisela Tsabalala,  9-1-1 (0KO), of Everton, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Catherine Phiri won the WBC World Bantamweight title at the Centro De Convenciones, Rosarito, Mexico, on January 30, 2016, when she defeated Yazmin Rivas when she won by a seventh round TD due to a cut that Rivas suffered.

In February 2016, Catherine Phiri was named our WBAN February 2016 fighter of the month for her fantastic win over Rivas.  WBAN has honored amateur and professional female boxers since July of 1998. [Link to past top monthly boxers].

Phiri began her professional boxing career since May of 2011, fighting all of her pro bouts in Zambia, other than in Mexico when she won the WBC Title.

Gibisela began fighting in December of  2010, with all of her professional bouts taking place in South Africa, and winning the vacant WBF Super Bantamweight World title in August of 2015 when she defeated Unathi Myekeni by a majority decision.

According to the Zambia Daily Nation, Gibisela's promoter said that   has warned Catherine to expect a tough fight because Gabisele was coming to Zambia to grab the belt and become the second African female boxer to win the WBC title.  She is currently the World Boxing Federation (WBF) champion and a voluntary challenger for Catherine for the WBC title.
