Upcoming cruiserweight boxer Kaleb Shitana will top the bill when he takes on Mduduzi Moyo of Zimbabwe in the main fight at the Wanderers Boxing Bonanza tomorrow evening. 

Shitana, who is still undefeated after three professional fights, was originally supposed to fight Youssouf Kasongo of the DR Congo, but according to the promoter, Kinda Nangolo, Kasongo withdrew due to injury. 

They, however, found a suitable replacement in Moyo, who has a record of three wins and two losses, and the two will now clash in a cruiserweight fight over eight rounds at the Wanderers Hall tomorrow evening. 

“Shitana is a good prospect with a good record. He is big and he is still young, and can even develop into a heavyweight later in his career,” Kinda said. 

Shitana is one of several young prospects from Kinda’s stable who will be in action in a total of eight fights tomorrow evening. 

In the main supporting bout, Jonathan Kasheeta (1F, 1W) will take on Ndamonaka Andrea, who is making his pro debut, in a flyweight fight over four rounds, while Robert Ndalelwa (3F, 2W,1L) takes on Fillimon Ndumbu, who is making his pro debut, in a welterweight fight over four rounds. 

Joseph Ampeya, who is making his pro debut, will take on Martin Kampulu (1F, 1L) in a super lightweight fight over four rounds, while Petrus Salom (4F, 3W, 1D) will take on Johannes Heita, who is making his pro debut, in a lightweight fight over four rounds. 

Sakaria Kennedy will make his pro debut in a super lightweight fight over four rounds against Reinhold Matheus (4F, 1W, 3L); Nelson Malangu (1F, 1W) will take on Phillipus Matheus, who is making his pro debut, in a bantamweight fight over four rounds; and in a featherweight fight over four rounds, both Paulus Benny and Samuel Mwatumbunge will make their pro debuts.

The action is due to start at 19h00, while tickets are available at the door or from Kinda at 0812486112. 

Tickets cost N$200 per person or N$10 000 for a ‘wine-and-dine’ table of ten.
