Namibia: It Will Be the End of Hitman's Career ? Castillo

Article Views (non — "Hitman is in the last years of his career and I'm going to make sure he goes into early retirement this coming Saturday. He will not reach the 4th or 5th round, as I have prepared hard for this fight and I'm going to take the title home."

Those were the confident words coming from Argentinean World Boxing Council (WBC) incumbent Latino lightweight champion, Jeremias 'El Profeta' Castillo, who challenges Namibia's Paulus 'The Hitman' Moses for the World Boxing Organization (WBO) International Lightweight title, over 12 rounds at the Vineta Sports Centre in Swakopmund this coming Saturday.

Castillo minced no words and went on to give Hitman a harsh verbal lashing, as he warned the Namibian that his days in the ring are numbered and come this Saturday will kiss goodbye his flourishing career.

In response, an unfazed Hitman said he has fought opponents who likewise spit all sorts of insults at him but made all of them eat humble pie, adding Castillo is in for a real surprise come Saturday. He promised to give Castillo a lesson in boxing. A confident Hitman promised to make the Argentinean fall hard on Saturday.

Meanwhile, MTC as the official sponsor of the fight has made available a few buses to help transport boxing lovers from Walvis Bay to Swakopmund where the event is taking place, the aim being to take boxing to the people or the people to boxing as it were.
