Young kickboxer Delano Muller handed over food parcels, stationery and printers to the destitute community of Fransfontein at Khorixas over the weekend.

The donation was funded by the proceeds Muller made from auctioning off his boxing gloves, as well as Red Cross Namibia and businessman John Endjala.

The 16-year-old athlete, a grade 10 learner at the Dolphin Schools at Walvis Bay, expressed his gratitude towards his contributors.

“I want to thank John Endjala for the cash contribution he made.”

Sporting achievements

Muller is a versatile martial artist who lists the following as his sporting achievements:

Kickboxing: World title belt holder in the featherweight division at the Battle of Atlanta World Championships in the USA; consecutive three-time sub-Saharan title belt winner.

Jiu-jitsu: Won first place at both the Abu Dhabi Pro International Jiu-Jitsu Championships and the Abu Dhabi Pro Continental Jiu-Jitsu Championships; ranks number one in the United Arab Emirates Jiu-Jitsu Federation.

Boxing: Namibian King of the Ring title belt holder.

“What is most remarkable is that his fights never last more than a minute and a half,” Anita de Klerk of the Kickboxing Federation said of the tenacious fighter.



Beauty and the beast

The youngest kickboxing judge and referee in the country, Muller is also an instructor at the Namibia Ring Contact Fighting Arts International and Kickboxing Academy at Walvis Bay.

Along with his sport obligations and charity work, the reigning Mr Walvis Bay and Mr Dolphin Schools 2020 does modelling with Ace Models International.

As part of the donations, he included a photo of himself, taken right after he won the world title in the USA, along with an encouraging message.

“You are amazing for facing Covid-19 with so much courage and hope,” the message read.
