Angered by the defeat of their compatriot, two Kenyan soldiers today ‘bombed’ Moscow as the battle in the World Military Boxing Championships entered the second day.
Lightweight Washington Wandera was overwhelmed by Uzbekistan’s Shankor Abduralov who was better armed than him for the Kenyan to go down on split points decision.
On learning about the annihilation of their countryman, bantamweight Robert Njau and light-fly Abednego Matilu staged a daring ground attack, gunning down their enemies in a fierce exchange of fire.
Njau outpointed Aleksandr Lauruchyk from Belarus while Abednego Matilu, despite being overwhelmed by the heavy armoury he was carrying, descended on Pakistan’s Muhammad Saeed with double flurries, shooting from his hips to have the last laugh on points.
Today, September 21, four Kenyan soldiers are planning to lay an ambush hoping that their strategy will succeed despite the cold weather in Moscow.
