Kenyans React After Fatuma Zarika’s Illegitimate Win Over Zambia’s Catherine Phiri

Kenya’s Fatuma Zarika and Zambia’s Catherine Phiri

On Saturday night, Kenyan boxer and WBC super bantamweight champion Fatuma ‘Iron Fist’ Zarika beat her Zambian challenger, the extremely quick Catherine Phiri to retain her title.

In the match that was a repeat of the December 2, 2017 title contest at the Carnivore Grounds, Zarika won after a 3-0 unanimous decision.

The judges, Michael Neequaye, Fillemon Mweya and Irene Semakula gave their scores as 98-92 99-91 97-93 sending Zarika’s fans into hysteria.

A huge majority of Kenyans, however, weren’t quite convinced that Zarika deserved the victory; with many questioning the impartiality of the judges.

Zarika’s recent victory over Yamelith Mercado also came under heavy criticism, with the Mexican herself coming out and declaring that she was robbed off her well deserved victory.

Here are some of the reactions to Zarika’s victory below.

Tell us your thoughts in the comments section; was Fatuma Zarika’s victory legitimate?
