Back to the Roots

A feast of fighting action is on the cards for 3 March in Katutura.

25 January 2019 | Sports

Namibia's leading boxing promoter Nestor Tobias from the MTC Nestor Sunshine Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy will kick off the year with a bang by presenting a world-class boxing event called 'Back to the Roots' on 3 March.

The boxing bonanza will be headlined by Charles Shinima and Mendu Kaangundue who will compete for the junior middleweight national title at A Shipena High School in Katutura.

Tobias said the theme of the event is very special to them as it speaks to Namibia's rich history.

“It will be the very first official event in the heart of Katutura and we are therefore going right back to our roots by staging this event.”

Shinima who holds a record of seven fights with no losses, will challenge the experienced Kaangundue who has fought nine fights, with six wins and three losses.

“The main bout will be supported by a youthful undercard, with the likes of Harry Simon Junior as the main supporting bout and other talented prospects,” Tobias said.

In the lightweight division (four-round swinger) bout, Sakaria Sheehama will face Paulus Amavila. In the bantamweight (four rounds) Andreas Mwenyo will cross swords with Titus Thomas.

The super bantamweight (four rounds), will see Philip Shaanika clash with Samuel Kambuta, who will be making his professional debut.

The super bantamweight fight over four rounds will be between Sam Mathews and Elifas Kambunga.

Mathias 'The Beast' Haita and Theofelus Nashilongo will meet in a super bantamweight clash, also over four rounds.

The junior middleweight (four rounds) will see Ndangi Shapwa competing against an opponent who is still to be announced.

Gabriel Ndjamba has a date with Salatiel Moses in the bantamweight division over four rounds.

In the super bantamweight division Filipus Nghiitumbwa will face an opponent that will still be announced.

Other fights will see Usko Rehabeam and Gerson Veta competing for top honours in the lightweight division. The junior welterweight will see Simon Jr exchanging blows with Dominikus Weyulu.

General tickets cost N$50 and VIP tickets N$200.
