Zambian boxing Catherine Phiri has received solidarity messages from some Kenyans that feel she was robbed of victory in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Bantamweight bout with Fatuma Zarika.

Judges shockingly awarded the fight to Fatuma, on unanimous points after Phiri pounded her throughout the 10-round bout.

The decision has raised eyebrows across the Zambian and Kenyan social media spectrum.

While Phiri has been less scurrilous in her acceptance of defeat, some fans have let out the cry for her.
It was the second time the boxers were meeting after their bout in December 2017 ended in another Fatuma victory.
