Tobias promises action packed from Naindjala

by John Tuerijama




Namibia’s boxing promoter, Nestor Tobias has promised nothing but an action packed night when WBO bantamweight interim African champion, Immanuel ‘Prince’ Naindjala trades blows against Kenyan challenger, Emilio Norfat at the Windhoek Country Club and Resort early next month.
In an interview with The Villager Sport, Tobias called on the private sector to provide financial assistance as nonstop negotiations with some private companies are ongoing.
Though pleading for financial assistance, Tobias promised that the fight will stay on the cards. He calls on boxing enthusiasts to show up in big numbers to watch fight live.
“Nothing is going to stop the fight from happening, that I promise you,” asserted the boxing guru.
He added that Naindjala is in good shape and is hard at training with nothing but determination to eliminate his Kenyan counterpart.
“The challenger will arrive in the country a week before the fight for acclimatisation. He is a very good boxer who has won five straight fights,” stated Tobias.
He said that entry fee is a mere N$100 with companies expected to fork out as much as N$10 000 for a table of 10.
The Prince, as he is affectionately known, also boasts a record of 13 fights with no defeat.
