Additional information

BACKGROUND
“I lost both my parents when I was young, so I grew up with my brothers and sisters with my grandmother. I was thinking if I go further in school, who will help pay for my school fees? So, I decided to leave school and look to boxing to make my life a little bit better. I decided I'm good in boxing, so let me work hard so that I'll become someone one day.?

AMBITION
"I'd like to become a professional boxer, but first I want to participate in the AIBA Professional series for amateur boxers." (namibian.com.na, 21 Jul 2016)
