Amateur boxing sensation, Mmusi Tswiigi, is on a winning spree this season, conquering every bout in various weight divisions – from 63kg to 67kg, 71kg, 75kg, and 81kg.

With the Botswana Boxing Association (BoBA) National Championships looming on November 11 and 12, Tswiigi, though unbeaten, is yet to decide which weight class to dominate.

He told MmegiSport he attributed his success to sheer hard work. "I think it would be interesting if my supporters were to choose for me the division I should fight in. I just want to prove to everyone that I can win against any opponent that comes before me," he remarked. Highlighting the challenge of favouritism in boxing, Tswiigi noted the tendency to favour boxers in certain categories. Despite his victories, he expressed frustration with the national team selection process.
