The Salute Boxing Academy will host its first boxing bonanza for the year in March, spokesperson Fredrich Nghiyolwa has announced.

Nghiyolwa said the boxing stable promised more fireworks this year as it eyed world titles.

“We opened our gym today (yesterday) and we expect all the boxers to start preparing for the year,” he said in an interview.

“We have enough time to March to polish our boxers so that they can be ready to entertain the boxing lovers.

“We expect WBF champion Tyson Uushona to defend his world tile during that time too.

“Guys like Lukas Ndafoluma are likely to be in action on the same day too, because we want to start the year with a bang.”

Nghiyolwa could not confirm the date and the venue for their first boxing event, stating that the leaders were still to decide.

He called for patience from boxing fans and assured the public that everything would be communicated to them as soon as all the logistics had been arranged.

“We hope and believe that the title will remain in Namibia when Tyson returns to the ring to defend it.

“There are also many more titles to be won by our boxers this year in view of the fact that we want to take boxing to another level,” he said.
