Salute Boxing to rumble in the North

Ready to rumble: The Salute boxing team and management rearing to go, pose during the announcement of their upcoming 10 bout boxing bonanza to be held on 26 August in Ondangwa

Following the announcement of a new boxing stable a fortnight ago, Salute Boxing Academy is set to host its maiden boxing bouts on 26 August at the J&P Complex in Onashitoke, Ondangwa as announced on Wednesday during a press conference in Windhoek.

The stable which currently does not have their own fighters will rely mainly on free agents as well as other boxing academies to participate in the first for the stable.
Executive Chairperson of the stable Kriata Kamanya during a press conference unpacked the fighters who will participate in the 10 bouts pencilled for the bonanza.
The main event of this maiden show, the Junior Lightweight IBF (12 rounds) will see Abraham Ndaendapo trade leather with Godfrey Nemukongwe who hails from South Africa.
Ndaendopo who is based in Swakopmund is a free agent and boasts of 15 fights, 13 wins and 2 losses and on paper seems to be the better half, as his opponent Nemukongwe, only has 13 fights, 9 wins, 3 losses and a draw. During the conference Ndaendopo said that currently he does not have any other binding contracts that can come into conflict with his upcoming fight against the South African and like any other of the fighters featuring on the card he is not bound to Salute Academy. Salute Boxing Academy’s Spokesperson, Fredrick Nghiyolwa in response to questions posed to him pertaining the choice of the venue, said, “We chose the North as most fighters hail from there. We are also trying to go to all the corners of the country and not just be placed in the capital as most people around the country are hungry for boxing.”
