BoBA, KBL in fresh sponsorship talks

The Botswana Boxing Association (BoBA) is already courting Kgalagadi Breweries Limited (KBL) for the renewal of the Keone Mooka Mageu national boxing championships sponsorship.

The current deal ends this year and BoBA and the sponsor have begun talks on another three-year deal. BoBA publicity secretary Willough Kemoen confirmed talks were already underway.

"We hope they will renew because we have done well, we are satisfied we have given them the much-needed mileage and obviously going forward we would want to do more. So we are hopeful they will renew the deal for another three years," Kemoen told Mmegi Sport. Under the current deal, KBL poured in P435, 000 with the initial championship sucking P135, 000 of the sponsorship while last year's games were allocated P145, 000. The final edition, already underway with two club championships having been played, takes the remaining P155, 000.

Kemoen said they were still eager to take the games to remote areas, having previously held a club championship in Mmadinare.

Plans are to take one of the championships to Maun this year.

"The more we go out to such areas, the more we encourage club formation

and subsequently the growth of the sport," he said.

Outside the major cities and towns including Gaborone, Francistown and Lobatse, new clubs Ghanzi Boxing Clubs, Kgalagadi Boxing Club and Maun Boxing Club have been formed.

Meanwhile, Kemoen confirmed the date for the 2012 Boxing Awards as May 25. The awards are to recognise boxers who excelled in the past year.

He said the 2012 edition will have nine categories with female boxers also set to be rewarded.

BoBA and Debswana, according to Kemoen, have agreed on the sponsorship for the awards. The diamond miners, Debswana, are the traditional sponsors of the awards. 

Last year, Debswana, upped their sponsorship for the annual awards from P50, 000 to P85, 000.

"We have agreed the sponsorship in principle and the dates are already set," he said.

Once again, former Olympian Oteng Oteng is set to dominate the awards, while Tsitsi Morake looks set to shine in the women's category after excelling ever since the inception of the women's bouts.
