FIVE Zimbabwean boxers exchanged hands in gloves at a match dubbed ‘Together as One Boxing Bonanza’ in Namibia despite being indoors since the outbreak of COVID-19.
The team travelled last week despite the confusion that surrounded their travelling plans after a local businessman pledged air tickets for the team after they had already traveled by a minibus dispatched from Windhoek to pick them up in Harare.
Zimbabwean boxers who took on against Namibia include Brendon Denes, Liberty Muwani, Patson Mutengwa, Ronald Tamani, and Tinashe Zihove.
Speaking to the BusinessMail, the team manager Clyde Musonda said 5 bouts were played and among them, Brandon Denes came out victorious against Mikka Shonena the Champion.
“In Bout 1 Charles Shinima beat Liberty Muwani, Bout 2 Paulinus Ndjolonimus beat Tinashe Zihove, Bout 3 Philipus Ngatumbwa beat Ronald Tamani, Bout 4 Harry Simon Jnr Namibia beat Patson Mutengwa, Bout 5 Brandon Denes beat Mikka Shonena the Champion,” Musonda said.
Musonda added that famous Namibian boxing promoter Nestor Tobias handled the bill.
“The boxers are set to earn amounts varying between R10000 and R20000 apiece in appearance fee,” he said.
