Durban at the Sports Combat World Cup, South Africa – Two boxers from Durban University of Technology’s (DUT) department of sports administration have been chosen to represent South Africa in Turkey from September 25 to 30. Scelo Mkhwanazi, 21, of Ulundi, and Siza Ngiba, 21, of Inanda, will compete in the FISU University Sports Combat World Cup.

The boxers were chosen by DUT because of their great accomplishments in the 2022 University Sports South Africa (USSA) Championships at the Sports Combat World Cup. “They will compete against some of the top competitors from colleges all around the globe in six sports, including boxing, karate, muaythai, sambo, wrestling, and wushu,” according to the institution.

Mkhwanazi won all three of his bouts in the USSA event, according to the university. This chance not only gives the boxers who made the team exposure, but it also flies the DUT flag high, Mkhwanazi added. He stated he would never forget how great it was to be chosen as one of South Africa’s boxers to compete in Turkey.

“I’m still worried since this is my first time traveling overseas, but I believe we were given enough time to prepare on the Sports Combat World Cup, and our coaches have been really helpful in preparing us for this huge event.” Mkhwanazi began boxing six years ago and is presently competing in the under 71kg division owing to his height and power.

“Over the years, I’ve received medals and prizes, but my most recent accomplishment was finishing the USSA competition unscathed.” “I had three matches and won all of them by knockout, which led to my selection to the national boxing squad,” he said. Mkhwanazi said he has progressed in the sport since 2015 because he is disciplined, hardworking, and does not fear competition.

He said that being coached by a buddy and professional boxer located in Gauteng had been the most beneficial to him at the Sports Combat World Cup. Mkhwanazi expressed gratitude to the DUT department of sports administration for the chance to go to Turkey and for their ongoing support. Ngiba expressed excitement at the prospect of traveling to Turkey.

“When I found out I was heading to Turkey, I was both delighted and terrified since I wouldn’t be fighting for myself alone, but for my nation as well at the World Cup betting.” “The closer the day gets, the scarier it becomes,” he remarked. Ngiba, who weighs 57kg, said he fell in love with boxing after being chosen for team eThekwini in 2015. One of his accomplishments, he claimed, was traveling to Botswana for the Region 5 games.

He said that he is practicing hard and putting in extra hours in preparation for the forthcoming battle. Error Spence Junior and Davin Henny, according to Ngiba, were his mentors at the Sports Combat World Cup. DUT boxing has done well in the last three years, according to Bongani Yengwa, director of the department of sports administration.

He did, however, state that this is the first time that two boxers from the USSA squad had been chosen to represent the DUT in Türkiye. “I would want to thank the coach, team manager, sports officer, and stakeholders from all departments who have contributed in ensuring that all of our sports programs improve,” Yengwa stated.

He also said that the selection of the two boxers for the tournament in Türkiye will motivate more students to participate in boxing and be more interested in participating sporting activities at DUT of Sports Combat World Cup betting. Yengwa wished the fighters well in their preparations for the tournament.
