Sniper silences Danny Boy


12 August 2019 | Sports

It was a bad day at the office for Namibia’s lightweight boxer Albinius ‘Danny Boy’ Felesiano when he was beaten fair and square by Zimbabwe’s Peter ‘Sniper’ Pambeni at Ramatex in Windhoek in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The two boxers were vying for the WBO Africa title over 12 rounds in the MTC Salute Boxing Academy’s Clash of the Titans boxing bonanza.

Before the fight the Namibian had promised to punish the Zimbabwean, saying that he would feel the pain when they stepped into the ring.

However, it was the Zimbabwean Pambeni who ended up punishing Felesiano on home turf.

Pambeni looked much more convincing and hungrier for the title, landing most of the punches throughout the fight.

Pambeni left Felesiano clueless and frustrated as he didn’t know which trick to use to floor the visiting Zimbabwean.

The Zimbabwean now has a record of 14 fights, 13 wins and one loss, whereas Felesiano has a tally of 22 fights, 18 wins, three losses and one draw.

At the same event local boxer Anthony Jarmann defeated Simeon Tcheta of Malawi in an entertaining six-rounder. Jarmann showed that he still has more surprises up his sleeve as he put on a great display.

Also in the mix of fights was Igor Shevadzutkyi of Ukraine, who stopped Alick Gogoda of Malawi seven seconds into the six-round heavyweight fight with a strong punch to the body. Gogoda could not continue the fight after that.

In other bouts, Marten Mukungu won his super bantamweight fight against Gustav Petrus.

In the light flyweight division Erastus Jonas defeated Leonard Gawanab. The flyweight fight went to Festus Simon against Ruben Kandimba.

In another thriller in the super bantamweight division, Lazarus Namalambo proved to be the better fighter as he defeated Immanuel Andeleki.

Lukas Ndafoluma ended up winning his fight against Enock Msambudzi of Zimbabwe.

Natanael Kakololo was in a tough fight against Toto Helebe of South Africa but managed to pull a win.

The light heavyweight bout went to Mejandjae Kasuto against Limbani Lano of Malawi.

Lazarus Shaningwa put up an entertaining fight against David Shinuna. The two exchanged blows from the word go, but it was Shaningwa who impressed in the end.

Nigerian heavyweight boxer Akeem Tijani was floored four minutes into the fight by Taras Neadachyn of Ukraine.

The third heavyweight fight ended with Kasera Sirongo defeating Johannes Nekongo.\
