Naaked Out!

After months and months of anticipating the boxing “fight of the year” between two South African celebrity music artists, Cassper Nyovest & NaakMusiq we finally saw the outcome this past weekend. The event was part of #CelebCity, a three-day entertainment takeover that was eagerly anticipated. The match was live on SuperSport Variety 4 by sports broadcaster SuperSport.

This historic fight between the two non-professional boxers was a hit as they put on a thrilling show for thousands of viewers on Saturday night. It sure different compared to their usual concert shows but we can definitely say it was worth the wait. Fans and industry friends of the couple even put their money with bets for their idol and took to social media to support #TeamCassper or #TeamNaak, knowing there could only be one winner. And of course the popular #Naakhimout hashtag created by Cassper Nyovest was also trending until the tables were turning in the ring.

The couple fought for five rounds in a passionate and aggressive battle, with the judges ultimately ruling in Naakmusiq’s favour. Because there were no knockouts in the contest, the winner was selected by a trio of Boxing SA judges’ scorecards.

What was the most interesting with this fight is how these musicians were able to create the sport hype in South Africa again. Many fans were saying that the general feel and excitement of the fight reminded them of how sport used to be celebrated and supported in South Africa. And it felt so good.

The fact that two musicians were able to bring music and boxing together whilst bringing the country together too was brilliant!

Should we be on the lookout for more celebrities fighting it out on sport grounds? We’ll keep you in the loop! 👀

Well done again to NaakMusiq for winning the fight! He sure did #Naakhimout!💪

    What a historic moment not only for the celebrities but for the Boxing Sport. A well organised sold out event and a positive way to show the entire continent that Sports and entertainment can bring so much into the country. For a previous ManBox featured icon Anga “NaakMusiq” Makubalo to win this bout without experience shows that with determination, hard work, dedication and effort one can achieve what ever they put their minds on. Well done to everyone who was part of the event, from organisers, fighters, technical team and sponsors like DStv, Billiato, Hollywoodbets for such a historic 5 rounds of celebrity boxing. Hope this will encourage the Minister of Sport to once again give support to the sport the produced the likes of Dingaan Thobela, , Baby Jake, Magebula, Thulani Malinga, Gerrie Coetzee, Corrie Sanders, Brian Mitchell, Vuyani Bhungu and many boxing heroes.

    For me I give props to Cass, as a businessman he really killed it. He had the whole of SA turning in to watch the match and he sure made money out of it. I have so much respect for Cass, he’s a baller for real. S/O to Naaq for winning
