WINDHOEK – Namibia’s top middleweight Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa will now face Tanzania’s Jacob Maganga for his non-title comeback fight April 20.
Kautondokwa was originally scheduled to face South Africa’s France Ramabolu, but Ramabolu withdrew from the bout only a few days ago.
“All I can say is that the fight with Ramabolu was confirmed and they now informed us that he is not ready and cannot fight Walter anymore.,” said Kautondokwa promoter Nestor Tobias. “Our conclusion is that Ramabolu and his camp developed cold feet and decided to pull out of the fight, but we are glad to announce a new opponent who is experienced and ready to fight Walter.”
Kautondokwa-Maganga will be featured on “The Legacy Part 2,” a boxing bonanza slated for the Windhoek Country Club.
Maganga’s record is 12-9-5 (8 KOs) while Kautondokwa is 17-1 (16 KOs).
“I am a bit disappointed that I cannot fight Ramabolu anymore but I am ready for any opponent and looking to return to winning ways again. I am feeling great; the camp has been good so far and we will get the job done come April 20,” said Kautondokwa.
Jeremiah “Low Key” Nakathila will feature in the main bout of “The Legacy Part 2.” Tickets are available at Computicket outlets countrywide for N$200 for standard tickets and N$10 000 for VIP tables.
