WINDHOEK, Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa, Namibia’s World Boxing Organization (WBO) Africa Middleweight Champion, has left for Ghana to defend his title against Obodai “The Miracle” Sai on Friday.
In a media statement issued by the Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academy here Monday, Kautondokwa said he was looking forward to successfully defend his title away from home. “I know it will be tough in Accra, I expect a tough fight and intimidating crowd but my team and me have planned nothing but a victory,” he said.
The Namibian boxer is known for his powerful punches which have seen him undefeated after 14 fights.
“The Miracle” is more experienced with 34 fights under his belt; 32 wins and two losses.
Trainer and promoter Nestor Tobias and trainer Joseph Antindi accompanied Kautondokwa who left for Accra Monday. They are arriving in Ghana early to acclimatise and prepare for the fight.
The Kautondokwa-Sai fight will be the main bout of the night at the newly built Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra which boasts a 800-seat auditorium, two storey aerobic, physiotherapy and gym block, a 300-seat conference hall, an Olympic size swimming pool and a 5,000-seat open air arena for boxing.
Kautondokwa is the current WBO Africa Middleweight champion. His last fight was in April against Med Sebyala from Uganda, whom he defeated via a technical knockout in the 10th round.
