Nairobi - Francis
Kimani can call himself a youth boxing world champion after winning the
World Professional Boxing Federation (WPBF) Youth Super featherweight
The 25-year-old sent local hope Bazila Ngoza to the floor in the
third round of their 10-round bout held at Arthur Davis Stadium in
"I was so relaxed in the fight. I was calculative. I knew the
opponent was under pressure fighting in front of a capacity home crowd
that filled the stadium, so I waited for the right moment to hit him
off," Kimani told Fever Pitch.
"It’s the greatest moment in my boxing history, I thank God to be the proud owner of a world title."
Kimani had Ngoza on the canvas as early as the first round and he
again had his opponent twice down with a right hook in the second. It
came as no surprise when a left hook ended the fight early.
"I am glad the bout was balanced and fair. In most cases if you fight
away from your own country, you can never be handed victory," he said.
"I started engaging in boxing when I was 12 years old. I turned professional in 2011 and I am glad this has started paying off."
