The Hitman confident of a win against Tagoe

REHOBOTH, 18 OCT (NAMPA) – Paulus ‘The Hitman’ Moses and his team are in Ghana preparing for the vacant World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa lightweight title fight against Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe scheduled for Friday.
They arrived in that country on Monday and the fight will take place at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana.
Tagoe, a former International Boxing Organisation (IBO) fighter who boasts a 28-1 record with 14 knockouts, regards himself as the best boxer in Ghana.
Moses will be his toughest and most experienced opponent to date.
Tagoe was stripped of his IBO lightweight world title for his failure to fight challenger Fedor Papazov after he was mandated by IBO to defend his belt against the Russian boxer not later than 17 June this year.
A media release issued to Nampa on Wednesday cited Moses as saying Tagoe has “never fought a world class fighter in the mould of The Hitman”.
“This will be a defeat for him and he will have nothing to be ashamed of losing against me,” Moses said.
Moses’s record stands at 44 bouts, 40 wins (25 by knockout) and four losses (one by knockout).
