MTC Nestor Sunshine Tobias Promotions have added an appetising second WBO Africa title fight to the ‘Together As One Part 3’ boxing card which will take place over the weekend.

This vacant title will be contested by Sebastian ‘Iron Fist’ Nathanael and Zimbabwe’s undefeated Hassan ‘Starboy’ Milanzi. The fight will be the top supporting bout for the main one between John John Paulus and Anthony Jarman, who will duke it out for the WBO Africa Super Middleweight title.

“I’m happy to confirm that we managed to secure the vacant WBO Africa featherweight title fight for Nathanael. We will now have two exciting WBO title fights on the card, which is tremendous for boxing fans,” promoted Nestor Tobias said.

“We have done an excellent job over the last six years in developing a new pipeline of exciting new talent and we are now ready to unleash them on the world boxing scene by allowing them to fight for continental titles that will seem ranked amongst the top 15 in their respective divisions.

‘‘I’m confident that he will do us proud and secure the title on Saturday,’’ Tobias said.

Winning streak

Nathanael has a record of 15 fights, 13 wins and two losses. He will go into this fight on a three-time winning streak.

His opponent Milanzi has a record of 10 fights, nine wins and one draw.

“I’m excited by the news of this fight. I have always wanted to be a continental champion and my dream is about to come true.

“I want to thank my promoter Nestor Tobias and the entire coaching staff, as well as our sponsor MTC for connecting my championship dream. I promise to make Namibia proud by winning this fight,” an excited Nathanael said.

There will also be many other mouth-watering undercards on the day.
