‘Low-Key’ still has hope of world title win before retirement

By Michael Uugwanga

BOXER Jeremiah ‘Low-Key’ Nakathila, who ended 2023 with two successive losses in the United States of America, has said that he still believes in winning a world title before retiring.

Nakathila (34), who is the country’s best boxer in the lightweight division, is a former African and Global Lightweight champion and has already fought on numerous occasions for a world title, but always came second best, but is very much confident of beating one of the best boxers this year once he gets another opportunity to fight a top-ranked boxer in the world.

Nakashima has 27 fights, 23 wins, and four losses. Despite his recent losses suffered last year, he has an impressive record of 19 knockouts against his opponent and remains one of the top contenders for a world title. His last loss was against Ernesto Mercado of the USA in Ontario, USA, in a non-title about. Still, before that, he had already lost to Raymond Muratalla, also from the USA, in Las Vagas (USA) in a title fight in the North American Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Global Lightweight titles that were vacant.
