The Botswana Boxing Association (BoBA) hosted a highly competitive international and interclub boxing friendly tournament at the University of Botswana (UB) on Saturday.

In a highly contested club level tournament, boxers displayed exceptional level of fitness, as most fights were action jam-packed throughout the contest. Tebogo Rennie of Francistown Boxing Club beat Calvin Modikwa of Glen Valley Boxing club 2-0.  Rennie had earlier been disqualified for illegal stunts, but the adjudicating board later reversed the decision to give him the win. The Francistown based club demonstrated a high-quality level of preparedness as Camm Manewe also soiled Willox Garethata of Mafika Boxing Club to a 2-1 defeat.

In the 52kg category, Mohammed Otukile of Mafika who is also in the national team camp in preparations for the Africa Games illustrated what a competent boxer he is, as he demolished Kesaobaka Nko of BMC to a 3-0 whitewash. The youthful Kutlwano Ogaketse, who is also in camp preparing for the 2015 Samoa Olympics, also displayed experience when he knocked out Moagi Modori of Orapa Boxing Club two minutes into the opening round.
