Danny Boy looking to improve his record

Boxer hungry for more success

Albinius “Danny Boy” Felisianu; Boxer; “My plan is to have two or three fights to improve my record until I get to a point where I can fight someone like Regis Prograis,”

Adolf Kaure - Swakopmund based boxer Albinius “Danny Boy” Felisianu recently beat Limbani Chipapaka from Malawi in a six- round, super lightweight, non-title fight on points in a unanimous decision at Ramatex in Windhoek.

According to the current IBF lightweight Africa champion the fight allowed him to test the level and improve on aspects of his boxing.

“The fight was good. I did what I always do and used the opportunity to show people that I can box. Some people were wondering why I did not knock Chipapaka out. Sometimes it’s not about knocking your opponent out, but about showing what you can do as a fighter.”

Felisianu said he was also determined to see if he could fight an entire bout, and go two or three rounds without being on the receiving end of a punch that could damage him.

Danny Boy now has a record of 19 wins from 22 fights, with 7 of those wins coming via knockouts. He has drawn two fights and suffered one defeat. He is currently preparing for a fight to be scheduled either on 22 December or 25 January in the northern part of the country.

“I am planning to have two or three fights to improve my record and get to a point where I can fight top world boxers like Regis Prograis, the American boxer who recently beat Namibian hopeful Julius “Blue Machine” Indongo in a title fight."

Danny Boy also called on Paulus "Hitman" Moses to return to the ring.

"He retired from boxing too early. I asked him many times to fight me and he kept avoiding me. People want to see such a fight. He does not have to worry about money. The fight will be on me, so the paycheck will come from my side. All he has to do is to accept the challenge and show up.”

He also encouraged business people in Swakopmund to come on board and sponsor a big title fight in the town.

Felisianu’s manager, Cindy Roberts, thanked various businesses made it possible for Danny Boy to fight in Windhoek. The sponsors include Dante Gurirab from Legacy Boxing Club, Dirk Kotze from F&F performance, Marco Lohmeier from Hans Lomeier, Peter Rust from Acacia Embroidery, Karen Dronia from Swakop Sport, Tangeni Amuthenu from TNT, Susda’s Rudolph Mouton, Crossroads’ Baasie Oosthuizen, the Dome health and training centre’s Dave Hammond, Max Benade from Planet Africa Investment and Kieth Louw from Autoperfect.
