Stiff Dong test for Shonena
23 August 2019 | Sports
The clinical 31-year-old Shonena boasts an undefeated record of 14 fights.
He is coming up against a boxer who also has a great record of 15 fights, 13 wins, one loss and a draw, despite Dong being seven years his junior.
“I have studied his videos. People must understand that I'm not only fighting for myself, but for the whole of Namibia. I will definitely not allow Namibia to get beaten by China,” Shonena said.
“It is my first time coming to Namibia and I'm coming here to win the fight. I'm still young, but ready to put up a great fight against a strong Namibian boxer,” the 24-year-old Dong said.
Nine undercard fights are also lined up, including that of Harry Simon Jr, who is due to fight Phillip Musariri from Zimbabwe.
Standard tickets are selling for N$100, while VIP tables that seat 10 people cost N$10 000.
Tickets are available at Computicket at Shoprite and Checkers outlets countrywide, and will also be on sale at the venue. The fight will be broadcast live in Namibia and China.
