Warriors Promotions held its first press conference for this year highlighting the project proposal  that they are embarking on as well as the three WBF title fights scheduled to take place during the month of March in Rosh Pinah and Windhoek. In a statement read by Ludwig Haimbodi, Warriors Promotion Chairman, the boxing promoters said that the City of Windhoek had allocated them an erf but they are yet to raise N$160,000 dollars  needed to have full ownership as they have been struggling to get funding.

Haimbondi highlighted the major aspects of their future sports complex they wish to build by 2015. He stated that the main reason for them to create a sports complex is for it to be able to generate its own income when functional and develop boxing at grass root level. The proposed complex to be constructed on their allocated erf will include a hall which will cater for all kinds of indoor sports, a boxing gym reserved for professional and amateur boxers and a fitness gym also for body fitness training. The large complex will also cater for the community as they intend to include a study room and coffee shop for the community who attend the gym and require a tranquil environment to study, stated Haimbodi. Meanwhile, the stable is to host three WBF title fights in March and May. The fights will see pound for pound fighter Tommy ‘Show” Nakashimba (14f-8W-5L-1D) exchange blows with a formidable opponent Darrl Basadre (11F-10W-1L) (Philippines) in a bout slated for the 29th of March in Rosh Pinah. Another bout for the day will see the World Boxing Federation African Welterweight Title fight between Lukas Ndalofuma and South African George Ndruli.
Later on the 9th of May, unbeaten Joseph “Smokey” Hilongwa will finally get a shot at the World Title and trade leather with Jether Oliva (20-1) of Philippines in a WBF World Super flyweight Title fight in Windhoek.
Haimbondi appealed to the corporate companies especially those in the mining town of Rosh Pinah to pitch in any financial aid in the upcoming events to be held in March.
