I will beat the hell out of you - Nakathila

18 April 2019 | Sports





Jeremiah 'Low-key' Nakathila is oozing with confidence ahead of his fight on Saturday against former European champion Zoltan 'Caramel' Kovacs.

He has issued a grim warning to the Hungarian, saying he will beat the hell out of him.

Nakathila will be contesting for the WBO global lightweight title against Kovacs at the Windhoek Country Club Resort in the Independence Legacy Fight Part 2 boxing tournament.

“I'm ready to do damage. I have been working hard for this fight. I will give you a few rounds and knock you out,” Nakathila told Kovacs during yesterday's face-off event in Windhoek. Kovacs also said he is ready and will take the title back to Hungary.

Nakathila will go into the bout with a record of 18 fights, 17 wins and one defeat, while Zoltan boasts a record of 23 wins, five losses and one draw.

In other fights of the night, Walter 'Executioner' Kautondokwa will meet France Ramabolu of South Africa in an international middleweight title fight.

Current WBO Africa welterweight champion Mike Shonena will also defend his title against Shadrack Ignas of Tanzania.

Shonena is undefeated and confident ahead of the fight.

Harry Simon Jr will challenge Andreas Nghinananye for the national junior welterweight title.



The other fights on the card are as follows:

1. Welterweight six rounds - Emmanuel Mungandjela (Namibia) vs TBA.

2. Featherweight six rounds - Onesmus Nekundi (Namibia) vs Lazarus Namalambo (Namibia).

3. Super bantamweight six rounds - Timoteus 'Remember' Shuulula (Namibia) vs Niikoti Johannes (Namibia).

4. Middleweight eight rounds - Paulinus Paulus (Namibia) vs Limbani Masamba (Malawi).

Tickets are available at Computicket at all Shoprite and Checkers outlets countrywide. VIP tables are selling for N$10 000 per table and standard tickets cost N$200. The undercard fights will kick off at 18:00.
