HEDISON “Bulelo” Nghipondoka believes that northern boxers fear him, therefore very reluctant to face him in the ring.
Nghipondoka was speaking during an MTC-Kilimanjaro Boxing Club press conference at Ongwediva on Wednesday.
He said that no boxer wants to fight him.
“Boxers don’t want to fight me in the north, most of them fake injuries just to avoid me,” he said.
He indicated that he is back and willing to fight.
Nghipondoka, who was defeated by Mosquito from Africa Connection Promotions in a dramatic second round technical knockout in Windhoek, claimed that he lost due to a poor judgement by his coach.
“My coach knew that I had an injury on my hand, but signed the contract to fight. That was never my fault,” he said.
Earlier this year, Nghipondoka was expected to go head-to-head with Michael Benhard from MTC-Kilimanjaro Boxing Club during the first MTC-Young Shall Grow boxing bonanza but the bout was cancelled at the last minute after Benhard sustained an injury.
He is now expected to face Dominicus Weyulu from Windhoek at the Oshakati Independence Stadium on the 22nd of October, during Part 2 of the MTC-Kilimanjaro Boxing Club Young Shall Grow professional boxing bonanza.
