The MTC Nestor Sunshine Promotions has announced that Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa versus Kanat Islam bout has now been confirmed for the 26th October in Kastana, Kazakhstan.
This is a mega fight between two WBO rated boxers.
Kautondokwa is currently rated number 10 while Islam is rated number 8 as the reigning WBO International champion.
They will thus be fighting for the WBO Middleweight International title.
Kanat Islam has been dubbed as the next ‘GGG’ from Kazakhstan, and he remains undefeated after 26 fights with an impressive 21 fight KO victory.
Kautondokwa has now fought 19 times with only 1 loss with an impressive 17 fights KO victory. What is clear is that both fighters have impressive knockout records and this battle will be about who has the best power shots.
Kautondokwa bounced back from his world title fight loss against Andrade with a 2nd round victory over Simeon Tcheta in May, and will be looking to climb a mammoth task with another accomplished world class fighter.
Nestor Tobias says his man is ready for the task at hand.
“This has been a big year for us, with all 3 of our world rated boxers fighting world rated opponents which rarely happens in boxing.
In March Nakathila destroyed Kovac from Hungary, in August Shonena won against Dong from China and now it is Kautondokwa’s turn.
“I was not happy with the Andrade fight because any good referee would have suspended Andrade for taking an illegal shot while Kautondokwa was on his knees after the two boxers clashed legs.
That was a very hard shot and Andrade should have been disqualified right away but the referee ignored the incident even though it was clear.
Of course, the punch affected Kautondokwa but he soldiered on.
Now we are back on the world stage with a very tough fight, but he is up to the task, and I am confident he will do us proud.
This fight is critically important because a win puts him right back at the top where he belongs” remarked Tobias.
