WINDHOEK, 21 AUG (NAMPA) – Zimbabwean middleweight boxer Brian Mwando is unhappy with the treatment he is receiving in Namibia ahead of his clash with Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa this coming Saturday.
The boxers will feature in the main fight of the “Champion in the making” event scheduled for the Windhoek Country Club and Resort.
It is hosted by the Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academy
The non-title fight is slated for 10 rounds.
Mwando, who arrived here on Tuesday, said during a media briefing on Thursday he has not trained since his arrival, and he has been abandoned by the organisers.
“I came to fight and I love fighting. At the end of the day one should win with a good reason and still lose with a good reason. But at the moment, since I arrived, I have not trained because the bus just left us where ever they left us - at a place without a gym - and I really don’t know where to go and train as it’s my first time in Namibia,” he stated.
The boxer added that the host team is not showing any respect to his camp, but he is prepared to put up a good fight on Saturday.
“I started fighting from the age of eight, and I was born to fight no matter what situation I meet. Come Saturday, I will put up a good fight and I will give you my best,” he boasted.
On his part, Namibian boxing promoter and owner of the Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academy, Nestor Tobias said at the same briefing the boxer did not request a gym.
“We cannot keep you away from the gym. I thought you were just relaxing to control your weight, but don’t worry, from now on we will give you VIP (very important person) treatment, and on Saturday night you will still get VIP treatment in the ring,” he said.
Meanwhile, the main supporting bout will be Johannes ‘Simon’ Baluka against Irvin Kaunampito; and Mike ‘Silent Assassinator’ Shonena against Immanuel Mungandjela over six rounds, respectively.
The doors will open at 18h30, and the first bout will start at 19h00.
Tickets are N.dollars 100 for general seats, and N.dollars 10 000 for tables seating 10 guests with snacks, refreshments and wine.
