Bond Boxing Promotions Company director, Bond Ngubula has praised local boxers’ professional conduct ahead of Friday’s professional bouts.

The company will host its fifth tournament at the Civic Centre Hall featuring the main bout between Botswana’s Patrick Seoko and South African opponent, Morapedi Khotle.

“Since we started this professional boxing in Botswana, I have never had a single boxer failing medicals. This is commendable because it goes to show that my boxers are taking very good care of themselves,” he said. Ngubula said most of the boxers have already done their medicals with only two expected to have done so by the end of today. He said the boxers as per the requirement these days are expected to do an HIV test and the delays were caused by some issues with the testing equipment at the government clinics which had nothing to do with the boxers or the event. He however expressed optimism that by the end of today, they would have completed everything and wait for the big event.
