THE World Boxing Organisation (WBO), vice chairperson, Semir Captan, has hailed local boxing promoter, Nestor Tobias as the best WBO promoter on the continent.
Tobias said it’s a great pleasure to be recognized internationally. “I must thank you guys from the media for writing about boxing events which get to be noticed by organizations such as the WBO,” said Tobias.
“I will keep on working hard. You know, that is indeed a positive motivation and I will help those kids get somewhere in their lives,” said the renowned boxing promoter.
The WBO vice chairperson for Africa and Asia, has endorsed the MTC Sunshine Promotions and its promoter, Tobias, as the leading Promoter in Africa.
Captan was quoted as having said: “We are very happy with the manner in which the MTC Sunshine Promotions manages their affairs, always professional, and I can confidently say that Tobias and the MTC Nestor Sunshine Promotions are without a doubt the leading promoter in Africa at the moment.”
“I know it is extremely difficult to organise boxing fights as a promoter because it is very expensive and the promoter is responsible for all costs involved. Putting five title fights on one card does not happen often, and not many promoters around the world can achieve what the MTC Sunshine Promotions are achieving, and this is therefore commendable,” said Captan.
“I am extremely humbled by the remarks from the WBO. The MTC Sunshine Academy has worked very closely with the WBO for many years now, and you would recall that the academy was honoured with the Best Promoter in Africa award for three consecutive years. This speaks volumes of the quality and depth we have and we can only thank our main sponsor MTC and the fans for the support we have enjoyed from all stakeholders over the years. Boxing is an expensive sport, but also a very exciting one and we will therefore continue to promote the sport in the interest of the boys and the c ount r y ”, remarked Tobias.
