MOABI NGAKA TO MAKE HISTORY IN VIETNAM
Botswana boxer Moabi "the Eagle" Ngaka touches down in Ho Chi Minh City next week, and aside from blazing hands, brings something for the record books with him.
Ngaka will appear at a top quality international show to be held at The Grand Ho Tram Resort next Saturday night, and in doing so, will be the first African pro boxer to fight in Vietnam.
The Eagle will take on local prospect Thai Hoang Huy, a boxer who has been rewarded for his escalating performances in the VSP PRO series, where he attained a 4-1 record.
His lone loss was a debated split decision, so Huy could easily be 5-0 in the stats.
But the Botswana visitor represents a big jump in class for the HCMC based prospect.
Moabi Ngaka has had over 60 amateur fights, winning 3 gold in national youth, and silver and bronze at senior level.
His pro record is 4-1, and last year, he won the WBF super bantamweight title in a fantastic 12 rounds display over the incumbent champion.
The fight next week in Vung Tau is a "MUST WIN" for the African boxer, who has been promised a title shot in Maun Botswana on December 15th if he is successful against Thai Hoang Huy.
Ngaka has been out of the ring for almost a year now, and only time will tell if that will play any part in his performance against a less experienced but feisty Vietnam fighter.
