Four local boxers for Namibia tourney


Four Zimbabwean boxers will be out for victory when they take part in an international tournament in Windhoek, Namibia, on November 25.

The four boxers are Tinashe Mutota from Masvingo, Misheck Kondwane, Tinashe Chigwida and Tinashe Madzuwana from Harare.

In the flyweight division, Mutota will battle it out against Ahmad Chinjuu while in the lightweight division Kondwane will be up against Jatoora Tjingaveta in a non-title fight.

In another non-title fight Madzuwana will square up against Emmanuel Kanjala in the bantamweight category.

Chigwida will take part in the only title fight for the day as he will battle it out against Paulus Ambunda in the bantamweight division.

Former Zimbabwean light and middleweight champion Mordecai Donga, who has assembled the boxing team will travel with the boxers as their manager.

Donga said all was in place for the fights and they would leave the country on November 19.

“The boxers are ready for their fights but we want to leave the country early as we want them to have enough time to rest and adapt before the fights,” said Donga.

A lot will be expected from Chigwida as he lost his last fight in Namibia on points.

“If Chigwida wins this fight he is going to be the new WBO Pan-African champion. He has had enough time to prepare since his last defeat in Namibia.

“I will be the technical advisor for the boxers and I will use my experience as a former boxer,” said Donga.
