The Gaborone boxing stable, Bond Boxing Promotions are scheduled to host an international fight on 26th October in Gaborone. The box and dine black tie event is expected to attract six professional fights featuring boxers from Botswana and South Africa.
The fight card themed, the Voyage will be headlined by Tshepiso Mokgadi from Bond boxing.
The 28-year-old Mokgadi will be facing Philip Musariri from the Delta Force boxing stable in Harare, Zimbabwe. The main bout will be six rounds at Junior welterweight. Mokgadi commands an impressive four wins, one draw and no losses while Musariri comes into the fight with five wins and two losses. Should he win his fifth professional bout, Mokgadi will be an inch closer to a Pan African title fight.
The undercard fights of the evening are expected to be even more interesting. The first undercard fight will be an evenly matched super featherweight bout, featuring former amateur sensation, Onkarabile ‘Scara ‘ Mothibedi from the Top 10 stables. Mothibedi who hails from Good hope will be facing Tshepo Khutloeng from Bond boxing. Both boxers are 24 years old with an orthodox stance. The records of both boxers mirror each other, both having won two fights and lost twice.
The third fight will feature Palapye debutant Boago Gaosego against Freeman Mabvongwe from Zimbabwe. Despite his tender age of only 20 years, Mabvongwe commands four fights with two wins and two losses. The fight will be contested at middleweight. The fourth fight of the night will feature the awkward super bantamweight, Thabiso Mpolokeng. The 22-year-old Mpolokeng will collide with Zimbabwe’s Tinashe Mutoza from Delta force boxing.
Mutodza who is ten years older than his opponent is a veteran with six wins and four losses. The fight organisers are expected to announce two more bouts that will be added to the card. In a brief interview this week, Bond boxing spokesperson, Katlego Olatotse said preparations for the big night are well under way. She further explained that boxing fans and enthusiasts should expect excitement and fireworks on October 26th.
