Prisons are kings of boxing

Atang Mosenke (in blue) of Prisons celebrates after winning 2 -1 against Kabo Seitshiro of EMG
Prisons Boxing Club are the champions of the Botswana Boxing Association (BoBA) National Championships held at the University of Botswana over the weekend. The club accumulated 14 points ahead of Mafika with 12 points while Eastern Military Garrison (EMG) finished third with nine points.

Prisons coach, Buwembo Sande Mpigi was nominated best coach following his club’s brilliant performance. He told Mmegi Sport yesterday that the result is an indication of hardwork, which began last year. He said in the last national championships, Prisons had only two boxers in the semi-final.

“This was not an overnight thing. We have been planning for it and the outcome of our plan is brilliant. My boxers are always ready for a challenge and to learn. I want to groom them into some of the best boxers in the country,” Mpigi said. He said Prisons boxers who failed to qualify for the finals were just unfortunate because they gave their all. He said the plan now is to start preparing for next year. Mpigi said they want

to have at least five boxers in the next BoBA national championships.

The weekend action was full of upsets as evidenced by the loss suffered by Steven Kabelo Bagwasi of DTCB at the hands of Kefentse Molalapata of UB. Bagwasi came into the match as a favourite only to get a shock beating from his opponent. The clash between the two boxers was chosen as the male best bout of the competition. Molalapata was selected as the best male boxer. 

In the other highlight, Mmusi Tswiigi of Prisons beat Lentswe Zwinila of Glen Valley boxing club in the 69kg category.

Other awards: Promising boxer (Bakang Molalapata), women best bout (Katlego Olatotse and Keneilwe Rakhudu), best women boxer (Keneilwe Rakhudu), best referee (Mothibedi Fraizer), Victor Mhlanga (best judge).
