WINDHOEK, 18 JUN (NAMPA) – Namibian middleweight boxer Walter ‘The Executioner’ Kautondokwa has been ranked number 10 in the top 15 World Boxing Organisation (WBO) middleweight May ratings.
His promoter Nestor Tobias of the MTC Nestor Sunshine Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy in a media statement on Monday welcomed Kautondokwa back into the top 15 WBO middleweight boxers, saying the Namibian boxer has every reason to smile as he worked his way back into those ratings.
Kautondokwa returned to the ring after his world title loss against Demetrius Andrade in October last year that took him out of the top 15 where he was ranked second, when he defeated his Tanzanian opponent, Simeon Tcheta, in the second round by technical knock-out on 10 May this year.
“After the Andrade loss, he needed to make a big statement with his comeback fight and he delivered superbly,” said Tobias, adding Kautondokwa is ready to show the world what he is really made of and the priority now is to fight anybody in the WBO top 15.
Kautondokwa said he is yet to show the world what he can do by making a statement against those rated in the top 15 with him, the statement read.
“I do not want people to judge me on the Andrade fight for various reasons. I feel great and prepared for the next big challenge so whoever faces me next must be very scared,” he said.
Kautondokwa is a former WBO African middleweight champion with only one loss to his name out of 19 fights.
