Tobias has produced many African and world champions over the years and still remains passionate about boxing.
This year the academy produced and groomed upcoming boxers, who have emerged as potential world stars.
“The year was tough, but I am proud of what I have achieved through the MTC Nestor 'Sunshine' Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy.
“There are more names emerging from my academy and that is a wonderful thing.
“We have developed a programme already for next year and we believe that 2020 will be a good year,” Tobias said.
He further urged other boxing promoters to remain focused on their goals.
Tobias feels that many boxing academies have the potential to reach greater heights, if they remain focused.
“Our academy has been an example to many and that is why there are more boxing promoters now.
“The only thing I would advise others to do is to remain focused and not point fingers at others.
“What we want to see are people prospering, without getting jealous,” Tobias said.
The promoter further hopes he can produce a world champion next year.
One of the academy's biggest world title hopefuls is Jeremiah 'Low-Key' Nakathila.
Nakathila recently defeated Peter Pambeni in a fight that took place at the Windhoek Country Club Resort.
He has not lost a bout in three years. Nakathila's only defeat came in 2016 when he lost to Evgeny Chuprakov during a World Boxing Organisation (WBO) intercontinental super featherweight title bout.
“There is plenty of potential in our camp and that is why I am confident that I will produce more world champions.
“I know that all of the guys have the potential to become great boxers.
“All I can wish for now is that we have a great 2020 and that we prosper as a unit,” Tobias added.
