Former Namibian national welterweight boxing champion, Tommy Hango, wants to regain the title he lost last year to Eradius Hamunyela.
Hango will need to be at his best to reclaim the title when he meets current holder, Anthony Jarman, on 7th June.
Jarman defeated Hamunyela on points in Windhoek in March, to claim the title. Hango now expects a good fight.
“Jarman is a good fighter with decent punches and he will not be easy to fight against. I have seen him fight before and the public should expect a good match. However, I’m confident of my victory too,” said Oranjemund-based Hango who has been in the gym since the beginning of the year, preparing to slay Jarman. He has even built other ideas for the occasion.
“He’s not a big threat and I will finish him before the 10th round. I was surprised to receive the news to defend my title, barely weeks after I had won it, yet it took Hamunyela months before he defended his. But that is no longer a problem, as my focus is to defend it,” said Jarman.
Hango has a record of 18F, 12W and 6L while Jarman stands at 11F, 9W and 2L.
Former World Boxing Organisation (WBO) bantamweight champion, Paulus ‘The Rock’ Ambunda, also makes his first return on 17th May at Omuthiya against Chilean boxer, Cristian Palma, in their International Boxing Federation (IBF) super bantamweight international title.
Ambunda has a record of 21F, 20W and 1L while Palma has 27F, 19W, 7L and 1D, coming into the fight against Ambunda.
Rated number one in the world by the WBO welterweight division, Betuel ‘Tyson’ Uushona awaits his biggest fight in the calendar year, to take on Ghanian Patrick Allotey for the WBO Africa and IBF international title.
Uushona has a record of 34F, 31W, 2L and 1TD (technical draw) while Allotey boasts a record of 26F, 24W and 2L.
Also in action will be Vikapita ‘Beastmaster’ Meroro who is currently rated number two in the world by the WBO, with a record of 29F, 25W and 4L. He will defend his WBO Africa cruiserweight title against Alphonce Mchumistumbo of Tanzania.
Mchumistumbo has a record of 17F, 14W, 2L and 1D.
Tickets to the Omuthiya fights go for N$50 and N$500 for VIPs.
