Namibian professional boxer Albinius 'Danny Boy' Felesianu will once again be in action on 30 March when the current IBF Lightweight Africa Champion takes on South African Lukhunyo Kaptein at the Mistico Equestrian Center in Cape Town.

To keep the Namibian ace as far away from any distractions as possible, the Gondwana Collection hosted ‘Danny Boy’ at their Delight Hotel in Swakopmund for the past week before he flew to Cape Town on Saturday to intensify training in preparation for the fight. “We put a lot of emphasis on supporting local talents and I’m sure we will continue helping as best as we can”, Reinhardt Stanley, Manager of the Delight Hotel, explained. 

The fight between the two protagonists, scheduled for eight rounds, will take place during the ‘Make or Break’ event hosted by South African-based boxing giants Kalakoda Promotions and Kwesé Sport. 

Felesianu is managed by The Dome Swakopmund but fights under Kalakoda’s banner, both in Namibia and South Africa. After two impressive performances in recent months, Kalakoda Promotions want to give the Swakopmund-based athlete one last preparation fight before he moves onto a much bigger task. “I’ve been training very hard and I’m ready. This is another stepping stone for me on the way to the very top”, Felesianu said.
