WINDHOEK, 23 OCT (NAMPA) – Namibian super featherweight boxer Abraham ‘Energy’ Ndaendapo will step into the ring against Rimar ‘Terminator’ Metuda of the Philippines on 26 November to contest the vacant World Boxing Federations (WBF) world title.
Newly established, Judgement Day Promotions formed by a group of local lawyers, announced this on Thursday.
Ndaendapo has a record of 19 fights with 15 wins, three loses and one no contest, while Metuda has a record of 10 fights and one defeat.
The fight will take place at the Ramatex complex in the capital.
The Swakopmund-based boxer won the vacant African Junior Lightweight International Boxing Federation (IBF) title in August 2015 after defeating Tanzanian boxer Mustafa Doto. He, however, lost against Oscar Chauke from South Africa for the WBF Intercontinental Super Featherweight title in June this year.
Ndaendapo told the media Thursday that he is happy to challenge for the world title.
“I am excited to be the main bout in November and I know that Judgement Day Promotions wants to promote young talented athletes, and come fight night I will do my best to keep the title in Namibia,” he said.
Speaking at the same occasion, Wes Chikwililwa, a member of Judgement Day Promotions, said they have seen talent in Namibia and realised the need to support upcoming boxers.
“We just need training facilities and we will give all these young upcoming boxers a chance to showcase their talent,” he said.
