Namibia retained Sub – Sahara Titles

The Namibian kickboxing champions Delano Muller, Sensei Leslie !Hoaeb and Julian Muller became the undisputed champion of their Sub-Saharan Titles at Desert Storm II that were hosted by the Namibian Kickboxing Federation (NFK) in Walvis Bay.
Julian Müller defended his Light Heavyweight title after clinically stopping the South African Champion Petrus “Bafana” Mayisela in the third round of their battle for all the belts. Mayisela, nicknamed “Bafana”, started the unification bout only marginally better, landing some crisp shots as he battled with Müller 22, for the centre of the ring in a tentative opener.
The fight, though, sparked into life in the next as the Julian quickly ceased control and dropped his southpaw opponent with a sharp, chopping left hand, after several right hooks and kicks had landed cleanly.
Julian regained his senses and fought to reach the end of the round, but, at almost ultimate ease and continued to dominate as the fight entered its third stanza.
Bafana come back with a few punches and kicks before he again injured his right shoulder that forced referee Gert Kotzee stopped the fight.
Lesley !Hoaëb retained his Super Lightweight Sub-Saharan Title after beating Bruce Gumbo from Zimbabwe with points after five rounds and Delano Müller is crowned the Atom Weight champion after beating the South African Thabiso Mkhwebane.
The NKF President Anita De Klerk said “I’m particularly very proud of all the fighters who participated in Desert Storm II as it takes courage to step in the ring and I respect each fighter”.
Anita added that it is important to support our youth in sport and that it is indeed an honor for the NFK to host International Martial Artists and the Namibian Teams at the Harbour town.
She also mentioned that the response was so overwhelming, and that the Federation already secured bookings for Desert Storm III in 2019.
“We look forward to 2019 and another successful year for the Namibian Martial Artist” Anita added.
