“As promised, I will always deliver for my team and this first show of 2020 will be a stacked card of talent to be announced very soon. It’s my goal to keep the boys busy, active and focused. The whole team of Thebe and Dusan,head coach and second coach respectively as well as co-managers and myself are all working hard to make champions of these three Batswana professional prospects. This time I have included them in a show with one of my other more experienced fighters and former world champion Moses ‘The Hitman’ Paulus and I’m sure the boys will learn a lot and perform well,” added Global Boxing Stars Chief Executive Officer, Scott Patrick Farrell.
According to Patrick Farrell the local trio will have a busy schedule as they are booked for April 18th in Harare on the Independence Day of Zimbabwe. “This huge boxing bonanza promoted by Managing Director of Delta Force boxing academy, Clyde Musonda in association with Scott Patrick Farrell’s Global Boxing Stars and Viva MP promotions will see the first World Africa Boxing Association World title contested between former three-time world champion Paulus ‘The Rock’ Ambunda, fighting out of the GBS camp as he faces local Zimbabwe favourite Tinashe Mwadziwana.”
On the undercard and same card as a former world champion, will be our own Botswana prospects, Steven, Kagiso and Kutlwano as they take on new opponents in another international competitive match. Meanwhile, an optimistic Farrell said GBS might soon take a professional boxer from team Botswana to compete in an international stage in the USA. “It’s my dream to build Botswana’s first world champion and that dream is very much on track to become a reality.”
