Namibia: Naidjala Promises to Make Sekotswe Pay

Windhoek — Immanuel 'Prince' Naidjala has cautioned his opponent in the International Boxing Federation (IBF) International bantamweight clash tomorrow to expect the worst.

World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa bantamweight champion Naidjala squares off against Lesley Sekotswe from Botswana for the vacant IBF International bantamweight title, in the main bout of the annual Independence Boxing Bonanza at the Windhoek Country Club.

At press briefing held at the Namibia Boxing Control Board in Windhoek yesterday, Naidjala said: "I'm more than ready for this fight. Lesley can come out in any style he wants, I will accommodate whatever style he plans to fight with. But he must also be very careful because if he makes one simple mistake, I will punish him," said the unbeaten Namibian.

A very calm Sekotswe retorted that as an amateur he fought many Namibians and on all occasions never failed to deliver, confidently adding that tomorrow's fight will certainly not be different.

"I have been out of action for quite some time now but my record still speaks for itself and tomorrow's fight will be nothing new to me. I'm fully prepared to give a decent show," said a self-assured Sekotswe.
