No Pain No Gain supports Namibia-bound boxers
No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions has pledged to bankroll international camping for three local boxers that are destined to fight non-title fights in Namibia next month.
Malawi’s lightweight champion, Salimu Chazama, lightweight contender number one, Chrispin Moliyati and welterweight boxer Ernest Msoliza, will camp in Zimbabwe for one week before proceeding to Namibia.
Chazama will face Namibian Martin Haikali in an eight-round non-title contest while Moliyati will take on Samuel Kapapu in a four-round contest.
In a welterweight four-round contest, Malawi’s Msoliza will date Mendu Kaangundue.
No Pain No Gain Boxing Promotions managing director, Craig Rousseau, said they came in to support New Dawn Boxing Promotions by facilitating the international fights and camping.
“International boxing promotions, No Pain No Gain in conjunction with Delta Force Boxing Academy, brokered the deal to enable three Malawian boxers to fight in Namibia.
“We are also sponsoring one-week camping which will be held in Zimbabwe. Remember the three boxers fight under local stable New Dawn Boxing Promotions and we are simply helping,” he said.
Rousseau said they were assisting because it was an issue of national importance.
“We want Malawian boxers to do well when they fight in other countries,” he said.
Rousseau said they wanted to give local boxers a chance to vie for international belts as well.
Local featherweight boxer, Wilson Masamba missed a chance to win the IBF Continental Africa lightweight title when he lost to former IBF World Youth Featherweight Prince Albinus Felesianu on unanimous decision two weeks ago.
Masamba’s three compatriots, including hi s younger brother, Aubrey, Felix Mwamaso and Charles Misanjo also lost in similar manner on the same bill that was staged at J&P Complex Onashitoke Ondangwa, in north Namibia.
