Ghana's Obodai Sai and Namibian Walter Kautondokwa are set for a career defining bout at the Bukom Arena for their WBO Middleweight Title eliminator.

The bout between the pair is set to bring closer the dream of getting a shot at the World title bout and victory could propel the victor into contention.

Both boxers weigh 160ibs and met the mark for the bout but the Ghanaian will have to be at his best to halt the winning streak of his Namibian opponent.

Kautondokwa, who is undefeated, holds a record of 14 wins in 14 bouts with 13 straight knockouts. Sai on the other hand, has a pretty decent record of 32 bouts, only 2 defeats and 25 knockouts.

However, Sai is confident of handing his opponent his first defeat.

“The bout will not travel the entire 12 rounds. I will knock my opponent out before the eighth round."

"I have prepared feverishly for the bout knowing Kautondokwa is a good boxer and expect to give out my best on the night."

But Kautondokwa is confident of keeping his unblemished record.

"I do not even understand the language and what the people are saying. I am just going all out to beat my opponent,” he stated.

“I am well prepared to win this bout and nothing is going to stop me from keeping my unbeaten run."

The undercards for the night include Michael Ansah (One Bullet) and Patrick Okine known as the Mallet scheduled for a rematch.

Ghana’s highest ranked boxer Rafael Mensah who is Number Three in the WBA Super featherweight world ratings will take on Edward Kambasi as Emmanuel Martey Mayweather battles it out with Kofi Johnson in a 10 round Super Middleweight Contest.
Kpakpo Allotey and Tackie Annan went through and would face off in National Super Lightweight Championship.
