Boxing coach Tobias Nashilongo has revealed that local boxer Lukas 'The Demolisher' Ndafoluma will be in action before the end of this month.

The boxer is already in the gym this early in the year and is preparing for a big fight.

“I can confirm that Lukas will be fighting before the end of this year with an opponent who is still to be confirmed.

“He is working very hard in the gym in order for him to be fit enough given that he had a holiday break,” Nashilongo said.

The coach believes his boxer will make the most of this year by defeating any challenger that comes his way.

He made his professional debut in 2007 against fellow Namibian Steven Shimbonde.

Ndafoluma outclassed Shimbonde at the SKW sports grounds to record his first professional victory.

It took him ten professional fights and five years before he fought for a title.

On 3 August last year, Ndafoluma became the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) intercontinental middleweight champion at The Dome in Swakopmund.

He won the title after defeating fellow Namibian Ebenestus Kaangundue.

Ndafoluma successfully defended his title when he defeated Hussein Itaba of Zimbabwe on 31 August.

Ndafoluma has so far won 13 fights and lost one.

He was born at Oshakati on 25 December 1985.

He grew up at Oshatumba village in Ompundja with his great-grandmother. Ndafoluma attended Ompundja Primary School and this is where his love of fighting started.

“The most important thing is that he remains in shape and focused to what he loves to do.

“His discipline on and off the ring is very important and will be something that will keep him going for a very long time,” Nashilongo reiterated.

The boxer said he will be ready for the fight and is not worried about who will be facing at the end of the month.

“I will be ready because I am already working so hard in the gym in order to demolish anyone who comes my way.

“Like I said at the end of last year, I predict bigger things in the for me in 2019,” Ndafoluma said.
