LIMBA MUPETAMI

Middleweight boxer Lukas ‘The Demolisher’ Ndafoluma is scheduled to exchange leather with Rams Ilunga of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in a non-title fight in Cape Town, South Africa tonight.

The boxer from the Salute Boxing Academy will compete in an eight-round bout against the DRC hard-hitter, who is expected to give the Namibian some stiff competition.

Salute Boxing Academy spokesperson PJ Amunyela confirmed he fight and said it means a lot to the boxer.

“A win will improve Ndafoluma world ranking. Demolisher is one of the best middleweight boxers Namibia currently has,” Amunyela said.

Ndafoluma said he is “feeling very great”.

“The weigh-in went well and I’m ready, he said, speaking from South Africa.

His opponent has four fights under his belt, with two wins and two losses, whereas Ndafoluma has 15 fights to his name, with 14 wins (five knockouts) and one loss.

Ndafoluma and his trainer Tobias Nashilongo are expected back in the country on Saturday.
