When your nickname is “Cowboy” it is only appropriate that you headline a show billed as “The Showdown”, and that is the case for Namibian World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Super Welterweight Champion Vakufilapo Nashivela.

On Saturday April 7on a WBF Championship double-header promoted by Salute Boxing Academy at the Windhoek Show Ground in Windhoek, Namibia, “Cowboy” Nashivela is set to duel South African Roarke Knapp in what will be his maiden title defense.

Both fighters are undefeated at 6-0, and both have won five bouts inside the distance, so it is hard to imagine this being anything but explosive. Capturing the title last December with a first round stoppage of Tanzanian George Mdluli, Nashivela could certainly have picked an easier foe in his first fight as champion.

Also on the card, promising Namibian national champion Nathaniel Kakololo will take on Israel “Money Machine” Kammwamba from Malawi for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Featherweight title.

In another well-matched encounter, Kakololo is 6-1-1 (2) as a professional, while Kammwamba brings a 9-2-1 (5) ledger. This one is also expected to provide pure fireworks, and the winner sets himself up nicely for more big fights in the future.
