Even though Phiri was quick and fast in punches, less of them landed on Zarika as the Kenyan looked slow but fierce.

Come the 9th round, Zarika started moving, making good runs and hitting the target as it should be as she led four points adrift of Phiri.

In the 10th and last round Zarika was stronger and punched herself to winning the fight and retaining the WBC title.
