After months of rigorous training, Namibian boxing sensation Harry Simon Junior will face Angola’s Henrique Lando in a thrilling 10-round International fight at the Homecoming Volume 2 tournament. The highly anticipated fight is set for this Saturday, December 10, at the Jan Wilken Indoor Sports Complex in Walvis Bay.

With an impressive track record of 20 undefeated fights and only one loss, Simon faces what promises to be the most significant challenges of his career. Harry Simon Senior, a former two-weight world champion and the proud father and trainer of Harry Simon Junior, is rallying the support of the Namibian community. He calls upon the nation to show up in large numbers at the Jan Wilken Indoor Sports Complex to back the homegrown talent.

Harry Simon Senior emphasises the importance of local support for Simon Junior.

“Lando has stepped into the ring in Namibia before, and it didn’t go well for him. Now, he’s facing the son of a world champion, and he is here to make a statement. But I am confident that this fight will be another disappointment for him,” he said.

Homecoming Volume 2 also features other bouts between mainly junior boxers. The tournament is made possible with generous sponsorships from the Knowledge Katti Foundation, Forsys Metals and Sintana Energy.

The weigh-in for the participating boxers takes place this Friday, December 8, at 10h00.

Fans and supporters can witness the intensity of the face-off as the boxers hit the scales, gearing up for the main event on Saturday.

Tickets for the event are available at N$100 and N$250 (VIP). For ticket purchases and additional information, please contact: 0814360616.
