Local boxing stable AC Boxing Promotions will host a boxing event in September with the aim to promote young prospects and turning them into world title contenders.

The main event will be headlined by 18-year-old undefeated bantamweight boxer Flaime 'SpecialOne' Nangolo, who has a record of 3-0.

He will face Teofilus Nashilongo over six rounds.


The undercards will feature the likes of former Olympian, Matias '45' Hamunyela, who represented Namibia at the summer Olympic Games in Brazil.

Hamunyela will be making his second appearance in the paid rank.

Other hot undefeated prospects who will also step in the ring include Shaanika 'Mosquito' Alfeus, Martin Mukungu, Mathew Nghikevali, Gabriel Tomas, Tomas Tyson and Johannes 'Pacman' Johannes.

All of the prospects are under the age of 24, according to AC Boxing Promotions owner, Immanuel Moses.

Struggle with no sponsors

“The reason why we announce our fights so early is to have enough time to raise funds because we don't have any sponsors.

“AC Promotions promoted three fights in association with Kinda Promotions last year, and it was very hard to do so without a sponsor. It will be harder this time around with only 250 people allowed to attend the event due to Covid-19 regulations,” he added.

Moses said the stable relies on tickets sales, and this time around has called on corporate companies to come on board by pledging any amount to make this event a success.

“Organising events without a sponsor will never discourage us from promoting the sport we love, we will hang in there till the last minute,” the promoter added.

Venue to be announced

He further said that they will still announce the venue, and will also keep the nation updated with regards to tickets sales and the full undercard line-up.

The event will be staged under the rules and regulations set by the Namibia Boxing Board as well as the Namibia Sport Commission.

Bringing more to the table

On top of having massive interest in developing young boxers, AC Promotion also trains top boxers in the country.

These include: Lukas 'Desert Storm' Sakaria, who is ranked number four in the world by the International Boxing Federation, and Julius 'Blue Machine' Indongo, who is the former unified world champion, as well as former world champions Paulus Ambunda, Paulus 'The Hitman' Moses and Jonas Matheus, who is managed by Global Boxing Stars.

The stable boasts 50 amateur boxers and five coaches.
