Fatuma Zarika Says she Owes No One Any Apology for Losing Fight

Ranting Kenyan boxer says she owes no one any apology for losing battle.

When sports personalities lose a match, the pain and anguish is always telling, but for Kenyan boxer Fatuma Zarika, she was happy she lost to Mexican Yamileth Mercado.

Zarika lost the World Boxing Council super-bantamweight title to her Mexican rival in a rematch bout in Chihuahua, Mexico yesterday morning.

In a post-bout interview on social media, Zarika says that she’s happy the belt remained in Mexico because she got no help from anyone as she prepared for the fight.

“Nimekaa na hiyo belt miaka nne. Na hakuna kitu mzuri ishaikuja except SportPesa. Government haitaki kushughulika, afadhali mshipi ibaki Mexico, mahali ambapo watai take care,” she said. (For four years, I’ve held the title and the only good thing I’ve received was help from Sportpesa. The government did not do anything, so, it’s better the belt remains in Mexico where they can take good care of it).

This comes after the government withdrew Sport Pesa from operating in the country. The betting companies were denied access to the Kenyan economy after being accused of not paying their taxes fully. The betting firms have been evading taxes for a while.
