Namibian boxer Lukas 'The Demolisher' Ndafoluma says he is ready to tame Russia's Apti 'The Tiger' Ustarkhanov in a World Boxing Organisation (WBO) title fight.
The Namibian will be in action in Moscow on 19 September for the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) super middleweight inter-continental title.
“It is going to be a very exciting fight and I am ready to give it my all and to return with the WBO title.
“Fighting away from home is never an easy thing but I can tell you now that I am ready to make history.
“All I have to do now is to have a thorough preparation in order for me to bring the title to Namibia,” Ndafoluma said.
Ndafoluma's promoter, Kiriata Kamanya of the MTC Salute Boxing Academy, said the boxer is preparing well for the fight.
Ndafoluma returns to Russia for the second time this year after he lost to Russia's Aidos Yerbossynuly on points for the World Boxing Council Asian Boxing Council continental super middleweight title.
The Namibian will go into the fight with a record of 15 wins (six by knockout) and two losses in his professional career.
His Russian opponent boasts a record of four wins out of seven fights, with three losses.
