Charles Shinima and Mendu Kaangudue fight on

The fight between the two up-and-coming boxers from Nestor Sunshine Tobias Boxing Academy will be taking place tomorrow at A. Shipena High School.
Nestor Boxing Academy coach and boss Nestor Tobias confirmed on Wednesday during a press conference at the MTC headquarter in Olympia that the match is scheduled for tomorrow.
During the press conference Tobias cleared rumours that had swirled around that the match for the Junior Middleweight National Title had been called off due to financial constraints.
He told reporters that the match is indeed on for tomorrow and called for all boxing lovers around the city and other places to come in numbers and support.
“The funds were now issued by the government, the fight is on. Come 2 March and witness the battle of the most promising fighters in the country. It wasn’t that easy putting up a fight but it is happening.”
Former boxers went through the same obstacles being faced by current boxers so it’s that way we have to push and go forward.”
At the press conference the two boxers were also in attendance and they were given an opportunity to talk about the fight where both fighters showed zeal for tomorrow’s match.
“I am really happy that finally the fight is taking place, I really wanted to fight. I and my team have worked so hard for this. So I’m quite excited for the match,” said Shinima.
Meanwhile his challenger Mendu Kaangudue appeared calm and urged people to wait for the fight and see what will happen.
“Talking a lot is nothing, we will wait until the last round maybe. But all I know is me and my team have worked so hard, also my coach did a lot,” said Kaangudue.
Tobias, who has also bred some of the most successful boxers in the country noted that most of the titles in Namibia are currently unoccupied. He urged boxers to take themselves out there and compete for those titles.
“Most titles in Namibia are vacant due to few boxers participating in competition. Next week we are going to announce another big fight,” he said.
Tickets are set at N$50.00 for general N$200.00 for VIP.
