Namibian boxing promoter Nestor Tobias has put together another top-class boxing bonanza for September 8, which will see Immanuel “Prince” Naidjala, Wilbeforce Shihepo, Tommy Hango and Sacky Shikukutu in action, amongst others.
In the main fight of the evening, Naidjala will face the experienced Luis Singo of Ecuador in an international bantamweight fight over 10 rounds.
Naidjala, who is still undefeated after 14 fights, currently holds the interim WBO Africa Bantamweight title and is ranked seventh in the world by the World Boxing Organisation.
Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club’s (KNVC) women’s team retained the top spot on the log after recording successive 3-0 victories against the NDF and Unam at last weekend’s games at the SKW Hall in Olympia.
KNVC were far too strong for the NDF and UNAM teams and have now increased their lead from three points before last weekend’s games to nine points ahead of second-placed Revivals Volleyball Club (RVC).
In one of the most exciting matches of the weekend, RVC and Unam battled it out before Unam emerged as 3-1 victors, with their stand out player being spiker Celestia Muller.
SKW won the inaugural NFA Khomas Under 15 soccer league when they beat Ramblers 4-0 in Windhoek on Saturday.
Ramblers just needed a draw to win the league as they held a two-point lead over SKW going into the final match of the season, but SKW rose to the occasion with a great performance.
They took the lead after only four minutes when captain Tangeni Ndeitunga pounced onto a poor back pass and tapped the ball into an empty net.
Namibia slumped to their fourth successive defeat at the Under 19 Cricket World Cup when Ireland beat them by four wickets in Brisbane on Monday.
Namibia could only score 128 runs for nine wickets in their 50 overs and Ireland easily reached the target for the loss of six wickets after only 25 overs.
The result means that Namibia will now face Nepal in a 13th position play-off match on Tuesday.
After winning the toss, Namibia elected to bat, but were soon in trouble when they lost three wickets in quick succession.
