The two faced each other in a highly-contested fight that saw Kayuni being announced winner through points after 10 rounds at M1 Centrepoint in Lilongwe.

Kayuni and Moliyati are MDF soldiers and have been out of the ring for sometime.

After the fight, Kayuni, who last fought in December 2020, said he was back to stay.

"Now I can start fighting for the belt. I wish promoters organised another fight soon. I want to teach these young ones how to fight," he said.

In his last fight, Kayuni lost to Byson Gwayani.

Moliyati failed to fight Gwayani last month due to an injury and was replaced by a Nigerian pugilist.
