WINDHOEK, 03 JUN (NAMPA) Paulus The Hitman Moses has signed a one-year promotion contract with Global Boxing Stars that will collaborate with Africa Connection (AC) Boxing Gym under the management of his brother, Immanuel Moses.
A press statement issued on Monday by Global Boxing Stars Chief Executive Officer and founder Scott Patrick Farrell said the boxing stable also has other Namibian boxers in Paulus The Rock Ambunda and Sakaria Desert Storm Lukas, and has worked with Manny Pacquiao in the past.
The company was recently registered in Botswana.
Farrell said he has seen a lot of talent in African boxers, especially in Namibia where some have won world titles before, adding his long-term vision is finding and developing the first world boxing champion for the stable from the excellent raw talent on the continent.
Africa has great talent and both Immanuel Moses and I are going to bring them to the world of professional boxing, by creating world champions that will dominate the sport, said Farrell.
Mosess last fight was in October 2018 when he lost to Emmanuel Tagoe by unanimous decision over 12 rounds in the vacant World Boxing Organisation Africa Lightweight Title bout in Accra, Ghana, where he also announced his retirement from professional boxing.
When asked about his retirement by Nampa on Monday, Moses said he never retired but rather took a break from boxing as he had a contract with MTC Nestor Sunshine Boxing & Fitness Academy at the time.
I did not retire, I just took a break from boxing because I had a contract with Nestor when I lost that fight in Ghana, said Moses.
About his new year-long contract, Moses said: I want to win a world title again before I retire, I think a year is enough for them to get me a world title as in a year I should fight three times or more. If I get one fight, the second and the third should be for the title among the top four world boxing organisations.
