WALTER “The Executioner” Kautondokwa will defend his WBO Africa middleweight title on 21 October, 2017 at the Windhoek Country Club Hotel.
The undefeated Kautondokwa who has an impressive knockout record of 93% after 15 fights will defend his WBO Africa title for a 5th time when he steps in the ring against Meschack Mwankemwa from Tanzania in the main event of the evening.
Kautondokwa recently impressed with a TKO win when he defeated WBO Africa Interim champion Obodai Sai in June in Ghana to retain his WBO title and add the vacant IBF Continental Africa title to his trophy cabinet. He is now ranked #7 by the World Boxing Organization and gunning in the right direction for world supremacy in one of the most competitive weight divisions.
In the main undercard fight, Namibia’s welterweight prospect, Mike Shonena will make his Africa debut when he fights for the vacant WBO Africa welterweight title for the first time. Shonena remains undefeated after 10 fights. He will step in the ring for the vacant title against either Iddi Pialari from Tanzania or James Onyongo from Kenya.
World acclaimed promoter, Nestor Tobias, says he is excited about the October event.
“We just came from a very successful event on the 9th September where we treated boxing fans to top class boxing, and we are inviting them again to another world class spectacle of Africa’s finest boxers involving two legitimate continental titles,” he said.
Kautondokwa said he was looking forward to the fight.
“I am just excited to be stepping in the ring again. I am happy that my record keeps on improving and my main focus is just to keep winning and getting better. I know my big break will come with time. I look forward to this fight and will be at my usual best against my opponent,” he said.
There will be eight other exciting fights on the undercard to give boxing fans total value for their money.
