WINDHOEK, 05 AUG – Albinius ‘Danny Boy’ Felesianu has called out former world champion Paulus ‘Hitman’ Moses to fight him at The Dome in Swakopmund in December.
Speaking to the media following Jeremiah Nakathila’s victory over Malawi’s Wilson Masamba at The Dome, the former International Boxing Federation Africa lightweight champion said he wanted to fight Moses in the Lightweight division.
“Nestor (Tobias) is here, I am saying to him make this fight happen. I want Paulus Moses here in December. I am the best in the Lightweight Division,” Felesianu said.
In response Moses questioned Felesianu’s credentials.
“That boy has no title. What does he want? I have proven to everyone that I am a world class boxer. I won a world title in Japan. I defended it in Windhoek. I just fought for another world title, so why must I prove myself?” he asked.
However he said he is ready for Felesianu – anytime, anywhere as long as the money was good and the fight was arranged accordingly.
“That boy does not have any promoter or manager. His career is washed out, he just wants to use my name,” he added.
He further said Felesianu does not know boxing rules because he uses the wrong platforms to arrange fights.
Moses said every fighter wants to fight champions and he is therefore not fazed by the attention from ‘backyard boxers’.
“I fought in America recently because Raymundo Beltran wanted to fight the best. He called my manager. I did not call him. That boy must do the same. He should stop being childish. Hitman is under Nestor Sunshine Tobias Promotions, talk to them and make an offer,” he advised.
Moses said he has already signed a contract to fight for the World Boxing Organisation Africa title in Ghana in October and the contract has been signed with an unnamed fighter.
He went on to say he is disappointed that Namibian boxers are busy trying to be the best in Namibia while his focus was to be the best in the world, revealing that he still has hopes for winning a world title.
Moses vacated the same title when he fought Beltran in the United States of America, and his unnamed Ghanaian opponent won the title after beating Zonke Fana of South Africa after that.
The former world champion beat Fana in 2013 in Windhoek via a technical knockout.
Moses added that since his fight in Ghana is in October, he will be more than ready to fight in December.
“We do not entertain craziness. Who is Danny? What title does he have? Who has he fought before? What is his ranking? I mean, there is no news there, it is as good as you saying you are challenging (Floyd) Mayweather. No one will take you serious,” his manager, Nestor Tobias said.
