Namibia’s World Boxing Organization (WBO) Junior Flyweight pugilist, Japhet Uutoni slightly moved his ranking from eight position to seventh respectively.
A media release on Tuesday by the MTC Nestor ‘Sunshine’ Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy said that another win for Uutoni will see the boxer moving in the top three bracket of the WBO.
Tobias said Uutoni who is affectionately known as the ‘Lion’ improved his WBO word rating days before he defends his WBO Jnr Flyweight International title on the 8 October at the Windhoek Country Club and Resort.
Uutoni will defend his title against Twalib Tuza from Tanzania. The Lion goes into this fight with an impressive record of 12 fights, 11 wins and only one loss while his opponent record stand at 18 fights, 15 wins and three losses.
The big question on the 8 October will be whether Uutoni can improve his record to 12 wins or whether Tuza can increase his win record to 16 wins, asked Tobias.
“This fight is of paramount importance to Uutoni, we are aware that the Jnr Flyweight world title is vacant at the moment and a win therefore means everything if we have any ambitions to fight for the world title in the future”, said Tobias.
“I know the importance of the fight, for now and the future. I take nothing away from my opponent, he comes in this fight with more fights, but I am more than ready just like a lion is always ready to catch its prey. I want to invite all boxing fans to crowd the Country Club to give us all the motivation we will need on the night”, quoted Uutoni
The Champions in Action Part 7 fight is proudly sponsored by MTC, and VIP tables sell for only N$10,000 while general tickets goes for N$300, respectively.
