Nestor Tobias believes that Mikka " Silent Assassin" Shonene has a bright future ahead of him - provided he stays focused.
Shonena featured as most high profile boxer at the recently held MTC Sunshine Boxing Fiesta under The MTC Nestor "Sunshine" Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy.
He fought against Tanzania's Mfaume Mafaume and according to Tobias, it has been a while since he last saw a fight that explosive as the two boxers went pound for pound for the WBO Africa Welterweight title.
Tobias told NBC Sport that the two boxers really put up a great performance but it was the hunger and desire of Shonena that propelled him into winning the WBO Welterweight title. So ultimately, a lot more can be expected of his boxer.
" The pressure he handled well it very well for sure. You know there's always room for improvement so when I see Mike Shonena when he fought now I see a lot of improvement in him” Tobias said.
Tobias said there's also encouragement for the coaches to go and work harder and to improve certain things to work also on their defense and offensive.
He said Shonena will have three weeks off before he gets back into the gym and that they are ready for any potential opportunities that will come their way.
“When you are in the top 15 you can get a call anytime you know. For now Welterweight is a very rich Division when it comes to talent. It's one of the toughest one. But if you can get a call to go fight for a world title we going to take it. If you want to be the best you have to beat the best" Tobias added.
Shonena is also in line to have his ranking reviewed after his successful evening at the MTC Sunshine Boxing Fiesta and Tobias believes it's only a matter of time before things start to happen for Shonena.
