Three Kenyan boxers led by the vastly experienced Nick Okoth and his compatriots Samuel Njau, and Elizabeth Andiego reached the African Boxing Confederation Championship finals in Maputo, Mozambique after successful semifinal outings on Thursday 15 September 2022.

Okoth registered a round two technical knockout against Algeria’s Tarzout Walid with Njau stopping Zambian Ben Banda in the second round of their semifinal bout.

Andiego was too strong for South African Mkateko Sithole, prompting the match referee to stop their bout in the first round.

Boniface Maina missed out on a finals slot after a points decision loss to Moroccan Hamza El Barbai.
