WINDHOEK, 24 JUL (NAMPA) - Boxing enthusiasts will be in for a real fiesta when the MTC Nestor ‘Sunshine’ Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy and Warriors Boxing Promotions hosts the much-awaited ‘No Mercy Part 3’ boxing bonanza here on Saturday.
The boxing bonanza will see Bantamweight boxer Immanuel 'Prince' Naidjala put his World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa Bantamweight title on the line against Joseph 'Smokey Joe' Hilongwa.
At a media conference held here on Thursday, Hilongwa promised to discipline Naidjala because he apparently does not have any manners because he arrived late for the conference.
“I think the former champion lacks a little bit of respect, which I will give him on Saturday. I will discipline him for making us wait here for almost half an hour. I think maybe he was trying to get fit but unfortunately it’s too late for that right now as we only have two days to go,” said Hilongwa.
Naidjala said “enough noise has been made” by Hilongwa and his manager, adding that all he wants now is for his supporters to go to the Windhoek Country Club Resort, where the boxing bonanza is taking place, on Saturday night “to witness one of the greatest nights in their lives”.
“I believe this will be the bout of the year and there will be blood and sweat, but one thing for sure is there will be someone going down. For the first six rounds I will go hard and I will see how strong he can stand.
After six rounds, if he is still standing, I will add more pressure, because I don’t want to leave it for the judges to decide the winner as the will be a lot of questions afterwards,” Naindjala boasted.
In other highlights on Saturday, Lukas 'Desert Storm' Sakaria is set to fight Tommy 'Show Man' Nakashimba for the featherweight national title, while Abmerk Shindjuu will trade blows with Japhet 'Thin Man' Uutoni, for the Namibian Lightweight title.
Julius 'Blue Machine' Indongo confronts Takudza Kuchocha for the WBO Africa JNR Welterweight, while Martin 'Black Poison' Haikali also takes to the ring to confront Samuel Kapapu for the WBO Africa Lightweight title.
Tickets are available at Computicket for N.dollars 200 for general seating and N.dollars 10 000 for a VIP table seating 10. Fans can also buy their tickets at the MTC Nestor ‘Sunshine’ Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy offices and from the Namibian Boxing Control Board in Windhoek.
