LUSAKA adidas ultra boost 3.0 pas cher femme , Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- A Zambian boxer is expected to fly out to Namibia on Wednesday for a shot at the World Boxing Organization (WBO) international featherweight title, the Zambia Daily Mail reported on Tuesday.
Featherweight boxer Pethias Chisenga will fight Namibia's Abmerk Shidjuu who is the immediate past WBO featherweight champion on Friday at Windhoek Country Club, according to the Daily Mail.
Anthony Mwamba, the boxer's trainer and manager said his boxer was ready and that he would bring glory to the country.
"Chisenga is in fine mood and form; he is working hard and is improving everyday. He is the next big male Zambian boxer. This will be an epic fight as his opponent is a good classic boxer as well," he was quoted as saying by the paper.
The Zambian boxer, who has a record of nine wins and one loss, last met the Namibian opponent in October last year, the fight the Namibian boxer won by majority decision after two judges gave him a tight victory while the third scored for a draw.
However, the Zambian pugilist avenged his earlier loss by defeating the Namibian via a unanimous points' decision during a non-title fight in March this year. The Namibian boxer has also fought for the Commonwealth title and has 13 wins and five losses.

NAIROBI, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Chinese television broadcast company, StarTimes plans to nurture sports talents in Africa in order to build future champions.
StarTimes vice president Mark Lisboa said in a media briefing in Nairobi that the sport sector in the continent is not yet fully developed.
"We therefore want to nurture sports talent in Africa so that sportsmen and women can play an integral part in socio-economic development," Lisboa said during the launch of the program for German football legend Lothar Matthaus' tour of Kenya.
Matthaus, who is Germany's most-capped player, will be in Nairobi on Sept. 19 and 20. The tour has been organized by StarTimes and German Bundesliga.
Lisboa said that his organization will target on sports development in all fields. "We will not be limited to popular sports like football but all fields where we see opportunities like athletics, hockey, taekwondo and boxing," he added.
Lisboa said that they hope to focus on those kids under 16 because they are eager to take instructions from experienced players.
"So that by the time they are 20 years old adidas superstar fleuri pas cher femme , they can compete globally," he said. "We believe if we start out developing young players right now, the dream of Kenya participating in football World Cup will be achieved."
StarTimes launched a rich football broadcast schedule to Kenyan subscribers last month. The comprehensive live football offering is composed of major international tournaments and top-tier European football leagues including the Bundesliga 201718 season during which 324 matches will be broadcast.
