AC Boxing Academy, in association with Kinda Promotions and 12 Round Boxing Academy, hosted a professional boxing development tournament on Saturday at the Wanderers Sport Club in Windhoek.

In the main bout Sacky Amutjaa beat Dominikus Weyulu in a super lightweight fight, upping his record to five fights, four wins and one loss.

The loss means Weyulu now has a record of 10 fights, two wins, seven losses and one draw. Amutjaa proved too strong for the pocket-sized Weyulu, who put up a great display of courage and endurance.

Both boxers did not flinch while exchanging blows toe-to-toe, to the delight of their supporters. But at the end it was Amutjaa's long reach that made the points count in his favour.

In the bantamweight category, 16-year old Flame Nangolo from AC Boxing Gym made history on Saturday evening by becoming the youngest Namibian to turn professional.

Nangolo showed great maturity by outfoxing his older and more experienced opponent. Nangolo is definitely a prospect for the future.

The only knockdown of the evening came in the in the second round of the super bantamweight fight between Martin Mukungu and Teofelus Nashilongo, when Mukungu dropped Nashilongo with a brutal hook in the corner, but the bell saved the brave fighter.

However, in the next round the referee stopped the fight to the dismay and protest of Nashilongo.

The other results were as follows:

1. Light flyweight (48.99kg), four rounds: Erastus Jonas (pro debut) beat Mathews Nghikevali (pro debut).

2. Lightweight (61.24kg), four rounds: Paulus Amavilla (2 fights, 2 wins) beat Johannes Andreas (pro debut).

3. Flyweight (50.80kg), four rounds: Draw between Thomas Ndeitunga (1 fight, 1 loss) and Theodor Nuyoma (1 fight, 1 loss).

4. Super welterweight (69.85kg), four rounds: Shanika Alfeus (pro debut) defeated Rafael Iita (5 fights, 3 wins, 2 losses).
