WINDHOEK, 04 AUG (NAMPA) South African lightweight boxer Thomas Mokwena says he will beat former Namibian World Boxing Association (WBA) Lightweight champion Paulus The Hitman Moses when the two meet on Saturday.
The two boxers will clash during the Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academys No Mercy Part Five boxing bonanza at the Windhoek Country Club in the capital.
The two boxers will lock horns in a rematch for the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa Lightweight title.
The last time they met in the ring was on 11 June, when they accidentally butted heads and Mokwena was injured. The fight was declared a no contest, leaving many fans disappointed.
Speaking at a media briefing in the capital on Thursday, Mokwena said he is ready for the fight and the time has come to set the record straight.
The last time I was here we did not fight as planned because The Hitman was so scared of me and he head-butted me. I really dont want to talk too much but on Saturday it will be my punches talking in that ring. I am going to break The Hitmans ribs, he said.
Moses told his opponent he has heard such threats before and on Saturday he will do what he does best: defeat his opponent.
Other fights on the night will see Immanuel Prince Naidjala take on Fadhili Majiha from Tanzania in defence of his WBO Bantamweight inter-continental title.
Julius Blue Machine Indongo will take on Fabian Lyimo from Tanzania in defence of his WBO Africa Junior Welterweight title.
