Simon back in action

12 October 2018 | Sports

Undefeated boxer Harry Simon is set to return to the ring when Onkugo Boxing Promotions hosts a tournament on 24 November in the capital.

The Namibian will face Tanzanian pugilist Kaminja Ramadhani Shabani in a catch-weight fight over eight rounds.

Simon was due to fight Vikapita Meroro at the end of June, but their fight failed once again to materialise.

A few years ago, it was announced that Simon and Meroro had been offered a lucrative deal by MTC to trade blows in the ring, but for unknown reasons that fight also never happened.

Owned by Harry Simon, the upcoming tournament will see boxers pitted against each other at the Ramatex complex, including some young up-and-coming pugilists.

There will be eight bouts on the night and the promoters have promised fireworks.

Albino 'Danny Boy' Felisianu will square off against Malawian Limbani Chipaka in a super lightweight fight over ten rounds in the main supporting bout.

General tickets are selling for N$100, while VIP tickets cost N$300.
