Bond Boxing Promotion will stage its first fights of the year, featuring five bouts on Friday at Boipuso Hall.  The main bout will be between Botswana's Tshepiso Mokgadi against Kapena Hamutenya from Namibia.  The supporting bout features local boxers, Thabiso Mpolokang (Bond Boxing Club) against Onkarabile Mothibedi from Scud Missile Boxing Club.
 
Promoter, Bond Ngubula said the other bout would see Tefo Letshikgane face off against Timotyious Hamutenya from Namibia. The three bouts are going to be fought over six rounds.  The other clash is between Tshepho Khutloeng (Bond) and Moabi Ngaka of Scud boxing club.  The last bout of the night, which is an international contest, will see local boxer, Max Ipingi and Freeman Mabvongwe from Zimbabwe, trade leather.
“The event is live on Maru TV. As a norm, there is a weigh in on Thursday afternoon (today).  Preparations are going well and boxers from Namibia and Zimbabwe are on their way.  Boxers have undergone medical tests including HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and C. It is a must for professional boxers,” Ngubula said.
He said professional boxing is growing in the country and boxers are making names for themselves.
“Letshikgane has seven fights and Mokgadi has four fights. They now have followers.  If they perform better on Friday, it will be a plus for them. They should not put themselves under pressure,” he said.
Ngubula said since the establishment of Bond Promotion in 2013, it has hosted seven events, which include tomorrow's fights. He said they hope to host three more professional events this year. He said it is all about finding partners within the business community.
Meanwhile, Ngubula said when they started in 2013, interest from boxers was high and many wanted to join.
“That number dropped drastically

over the years. They believed that there is a lot of money in professional boxing. They thought that the moment they leave amateur boxing and start fighting four rounds, they expect a lot of money,” he said.

Ngubula said those who were patient, have stuck with them. He said there is a standard rate for four rounds and no boxer is paid less than P1,000.
“It is unfortunate that some boxers put money first and forget to focus on growth.  This is a business and I cannot invest on a boxer who cannot even win the African Championship belt,” he said.
