Namibian super middleweight boxer Vikapita Meroro chalked up his 16th victory in the paid ranks when he beat Panda Lucumbi of Angola on a fourth round knockout on Friday.
According to Meroro’s trainer Nestor Tobias it was his best performance yet as he dominated the previously unbeaten Lucumbi from the start before knocking him down with a crunching body blow.
Namibian rugby coach John Williams has expressed confidence that Namibia will beat the Ivory Coast in their return World Cup qualifier at Windhoek’s Hage Geingob Stadium on Saturday. The first leg encounter ended in a 13-all draw in Abidjan on June 14, but Williams said the circumstances counted against Namibia.
The match in Abidjan took place in wet and rainy conditions while Namibia’s preparations were also adversely affected by the hosts’ poor organisation.
The countdown to Saturday’s Cell One NFA Cup final between Orlando Pirates and Eleven Arrows started in earnest on Tuesday when Cell One announced an exciting programme or the final which takes place at Windhoek’s Independence Stadium on Saturday, June 27.
