Kautondokwa braces for biggest career fight ever
Sunshine boxing sensation, Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa, will step into the ring for the biggest fight of his career against a well experienced Demetrius Andrade from the USA for the vacant WBO World Middleweight title.
This comes after the Massachusetts State Boxing Commission denied Billy Saunders a license to fight in their state after a failed drug test.
Andrade was supposed to challenge Saunders for the title on 20th October in Atlanta, this fight will now however proceed but with Kautondokwa who was the next highest ranked opponent at number 2 with Andrade number 1.
The boxing stable’s god-father, Nestor Tobias defined this sudden development as a blessing in disguise.
He said Kautondokwa has worked so hard to get where he is.
“He was patient, disciplined and hardworking and he has truly earned the opportunity to get the biggest fight of his life in the boxing country of the world where only 2 Namibian boxers from MTC Sunshine being Paulus Moses and Indongo has achieved so far.”
“We are excited to be going back to the USA merely eight months after being there with The Hitman Moses, even if I have to say it myself, this is an incredible and outstanding boxing achievement for the MTC Nestor Sunshine Promotions and we thank the good Lord for blessing us with yet another title.”
“We have been waiting for such an opportunity to introduce the hard-hitting Kautondokwa to the boxing world and that opportunity has dawned upon us, we are ready to deliver on the biggest world stage once again and fly Namibia’s flag high by fighting for a world title fight by the top four boxing bodies in the world” said Nestor.
The boxer himself has been humbled by this opportunity.
He said, “I have only ever fought outside of Namibia once in my professional career, but I am not intimidated to fight in the USA. I am from the Land of the Brave and although I am relatively unknown and most definitely the underdog going in this fight, it gives me a great advantage to focus on doing my best and surprising my opponent and the fans.”
“I thank the good Lord for blessing me with this opportunity. I laid my mom to rest just a few days to go but I am more determined now than ever to go out there and make her proud” remarked Kautondokwa.
