Boxers ready to show their talent… while the bonanza is planned for today

About 10 amateur boxing stables in the northern part of the country will compete today in the MTC Kilimanjaro Boxing Club’s boxing bonanza, which will be held at the Ondangwa Trade Fair.

With the theme “Youth will grow up in boxing bonanza”, the event aims to explore the boxers who will represent the Oshana region in the annual national boxing bonanza later this year.

According to Joseph Bernhard, owner and promoter of the Kilimanjaro boxing club, the bonanza will feature clubs from around Oshakati and other nearby towns and constituencies all vying for top honours.

“This is not just a tournament; It is a means to promote sports among young people and keep them away from negative behaviors. Through this, we aim to help them realize their dreams because not everyone excels academically, but sports can pave the way to success. We expect a great turnout with exciting boxing fights on display,” he said.

This event marks the first of the year for boxing and offers the region the opportunity to assess its readiness to compete with other regions such as Khomas and Erongo.

“Our mandate is to give these children a platform to achieve their dreams. This event is particularly special because we must look for the best to represent us at the national championships,” she said.

“It is time for Oshana to assert his dominance and compete at the highest level. We would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors, MTC, for making this event possible thanks to their funding. We hope to see more competitions like this in the future,” Bernhard added.

Emvula Emvula, promoter and trainer of Teremoto Boxing Academy, which has enrolled three boxers in the featherweight division, said his boxers are ready to show their skills. His boxers aim to show dominance in today’s bonanza.

“It has been good training for us and we expect a tough competition. However, we are well prepared, we have invested a lot of time in our training and our goal is to emerge victorious today. This competition is exactly what we need. It will propel us forward like a stable toward our goals,” he said. [email protected]
