WINDHOEK --- Namibia's African Boxing Union (ABU) featherweight champion, Nathanael 'Natty' Kakololo said he is always ready to step in the ring and fight, which is why his next opponent, Lerato Dlamini, should be ready for a battle.

The Namibian boxer will on Sunday challenge the South African Dlamini for the World Boxing Council (WBC) silver featherweight title in East London, South Africa. Speaking during a media conference that was held in the capital on Monday, Kakololo said he has always wanted bigger test in his boxing career. “After I won the ABU title last year, I was looking forward to fighting for the WBC title and God gave me this opportunity to flourish now.

I am going to South Africa to upset them and make the Namibian people happy,” he said. Kakololo added that his trip to South Africa is not to visit but to collect the WBC silver featherweight belt, for which he has trained long and hard. “I am ever-ready and come Sunday night, I will be the new WBC silver featherweight champion. I am in top shape and credit should be given to my stable the MTC Salute Boxing Academy, my coaches and sparring partner who kept me busy in the gym,” Kakololo said.

 Kakololo has a record of 11 fights, nine wins, one draw and one defeat under his belt, while his opponent Dlamini, who is the defending champion of the WBC silver featherweight title, boasts a record of 14 fights 13 wins and a single loss. Kakololo, led by trainers Tobias Nashilongo and Elifas Namundjembo, will depart for South Africa on Wednesday for their final preparations ahead of the fight on Sunday.
