Namibia’s Jonas Junias Jonas (pictured) and Uganda’s Joshua Takamuhebwa punched their way to the quarter-finals in the ongoing round of 16 light-welterweight bouts in the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Jonas, the defending champion, was on top of his game outsmarting Bahamas pro boxer, Rashield Williams enroute to a commanding 5-0 points victory.
“Africa should expect another gold medal from me, he didn’t hurt me with any punch,” said the 28-year-old Jonas, Namibia’s most decorated boxer.
Elsewhere, Uganda’s national champion and a gold medallist in the Kilimanjaro tournament in Dar es Salaam, Joshua Takamuhebwa outpointed Australia’s Billy Polkinghorn 4-1 to keep alive his hopes of making it to the finals.
