WINDHOEK, 21 OCT (NAMPA) – Paulus ‘The Hitman’ Moses lost to Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe via a unanimous decision over 12 rounds in their vacant World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa Lightweight Title bout in Accra, Ghana.
Shortly after the fight Saturday night, the Namibian champ also announced his retirement from professional boxing.
The fight, which was monitored by this agency on Facebook Live, saw the three judges score the bout 120-110, 120-109 and 120-109 in favour of local crowd favourite Tagoe.
Tagoe dominated Moses from start to finish, using his superior jab power and attacking the Namibian with body shots.
Moses failed to land any convincing punches, and in the third round he was caught with a left hook which seemed to have caught him by surprise.
Moses tried to work his way back to the fight, but Ghanaian Tagoe had an answer to every question being asked by the Namibian former world champion.
In the ninth round, a clearly tired Moses failed to throw a single punch and from there on, Tagoe was on cruise control.
Following his win, Tagoe now has 29 wins and one defeat, while Moses’ record now stands at 25 wins and five defeats.
