Danny Boy still eager for Hitman showdown

Boxer aiming for world title

28 January 2019 | Sports

Imm Moses; Promoter; "He must not try to make it look like Hitman is afraid of him.”

Adolf Kaure – Swakopmund-based boxer Albinius “Danny Boy” Felesianu still has aspirations of fighting Paulus “The Hitman” Moses this year.

Speaking to Erongo, the boxer said that a deal in principle has been agreed for the fight to take place.

“We have had an agreement with AC Academy Boxing Sport and Entertainment for me to fight Moses in a ten-round bout.”

Promoter Imms Moses this week told Danny Boy to stop trying to use the media to fix a fight for him against his brother Hitman, who is the former World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight champion.

“He is just trying to hype himself up like usual. If he wants to fight Hitman, he must come and speak to the promoters and then we’ll see. He must not try to make it look like Hitman is afraid of him. At the moment there is no fight agreed.”

According to Felesianu, who goes by the mantra “feel the pain”, Moses wants to come out of retirement to give boxing lovers an unforgettable fight.

"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.”

Two years ago Moses of AC Academy Boxing Sport and Entertainment advised Danny Boy to get to Hitman’s level if he wants a fight with the legendary boxer.

“Every boxer’s dream is to fight who they think is the best. Boxing has structures and to fight a certain boxer you need to earn it. Hitman is rated number three in the world and Danny Boy is not rated. He must fight his way through to make it into the ratings. There are many boxers he can fight to get to Hitman’s level. It’s a waste of time for Hitman to fight Danny Boy."

Danny Boy took this advice and won fights against Limbani Chipaka, Willis Baloyi and Lukhanyo Kaptein respectively via unanimous points decisions in 2018 .

Moses has a record 40 wins from 45 bouts with 25 coming via knockout. He has lost five bouts. In 2018 he lost his two fights via unanimous points decisions to Raymundo Beltran and Emmanuel Tagoe respectively.

Danny Boy, who is the current IBF (International Boxing Federation) lightweight Africa champion, also has prospects of fighting Americans Malcolm Klassen and Regis Prograis. A fight with the latter could be as a challenger for a world title.

Danny Boy currently 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 encouraged business people in Swakopmund to come on board and sponsor a big title fight in the town.
