Boxing coach Joseph Bernard spoke specifically about the six-round lightweight fight between his son, Michael Bernard, and Dominikus Weyulu.

“It's going to be a re-match between the two so it will be a cracker,” he said.

The two boxers are itching to get back into the ring as they fought different opponents on 7 November in the MTC Nestor Tobias Together as One Boxing Bonanza held at the Windhoek Country Club. This was a great offering for fans in the capital who were action starved because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The stable also hosted its first 10-bout amateur boxing tournament on 31 October.



What transpired

In that fight, Bernard drew with Frans Naanda and Weyulu was defeated by Sebastian Nathaniel.

This weekend's bonanza will see Efreim Nangolo face David Johannes in the super-bantamweight class (four rounds). In the welterweight class, Herbert Negumbo will go up against Ndangi Shapwa.

In the flyweight class, Lamek Fabian and Thomas Gabriel will square off. Gabriel will be making his professional debut.

The lightweight class will see Joseph Abel up against Daniel Johannes. It will be a professional debut for the latter. In a heavyweight four-rounder, Johannes Shilongo and Kleopas Chire will clash. Chire will make his professional debut.

There will be another four-round fight between Immanuel Jason and Gerson Halweendo in the featherweight class. The later will be making his professional debut.

In a junior lightweight six-round fight, Abraham Ndaenda will face David Shinuna.

In the super-bantamweight four-rounder, Julius Sheetheni and Nelson Hango will square off.

The welterweight national 10-round title fight will be between Imanuel Mungandjela and Edison Hipondokwa. This will be a professional debut for both boxers.
