‘Champions in the Making’ Bonanza

The MTC Nestor Sunshine Boxing amp Fitness Academy will stage the “Champions in the Making” boxing bonanza on 23 August 2014 at the Windhoek Country Club.

The main attraction will be the knockout specialist Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa against Brian Mwando from Zimbabwe in a middleweight fight over 10 rounds, with the main supporting bout being a bantamweight fight between Johannes ‘Baluka’ Simon and Irvin Kaunampito over six rounds.

In another highly anticipated fight, Mike “Silent Assassin” Shonena will take on Immanuel Mungandjela in a welterweight fight over six rounds.

“All these boxers went through the amateur ranks where they represented Namibia at an international level and now they are ready to put our beloved country on the world map,” promoter Nestor Tobias said.

“Walter is our future champion, as he has everything you need to have as a boxer, with speed and power in both hands, accuracy and balance. This kid is exciting and is fun to watch, please be there to enjoy the evening with us,” he added.

The gates will open at 18h30 and the first bout will start at 19h00. Tickets are N$100 for general seats and N$10 000 for a table seating 10 guests with snacks, refreshments and wine.

“We promised you that we will put this nation on the world map and we did that. That is why we are giving all the boxers a chance to shine on the bigger stage and to market themselves. At the academy we have got an open door policy and the sky is the limit for us when it comes to promoting boxing,” Tobias said.

Some of the world class boxers and former world champions who will be present and available for autographs include Paulus Ambunda, Tyson Ushona, Hitman Moses, Vikapita Meroro, Jatoorora Tjingavete, Wilbeforce Shihepo, Martin Haikali, Immanuel Naidjala, Julius Indongo, Abmerk Shidjuu, Ali Nuumbembe and Sacky Shikukutu.
