Namibia: Sky's the Limit for Hitman - Tobias

Windhoek — Namibia's internationally-acclaimed boxing promoter Nestor 'Sunshine' Tobias has heaped praise upon Paulus 'The Hitman' Moses, following his impressive performance against Argentinean opponent Jeremias Castillo, during their WBO international lightweight title fight at Swakopmund's Vineta Sports Centre last weekend.

In an interview yesterday, Tobias said the sky is the limit for his boxers, particularly Hitman, adding that next year will be a year of titles for Namibian pugilists. He further revealed that besides Paulus 'The Rock' Ambunda who is scheduled to fight for a world title in January next year, Hitman and Tyson Uushona will also be in line to have a shot at the world title in their respective divisions.

"The performance we witnessed in Swakopmund last weekend is testimony that Hitman is back and very much determined to once again reclaim top spot in the world of professional boxing. Hitman is promoted by Don King, so we have to wait and see what Don has in store for him, but for now I will just keep on sending Don motivation letters and organize more big fights for Hitman as he will be stepping up in the coming world rankings."

"With regard to Tyson, he also fought an exceptionally good fight, but I was not so impressed with his overall performance, because I know he could have done better than that. So, we first need to fully correct and polish those little mistakes before giving giving him a shot at a world title. Tyson is currently ranked number two in the WBO welterweight division and the possibility of him fighting for a title is very good," explained Tobias.

Tobias says he is still negotiating with the camp of Thailand boxer Punglaung Singyu to have the WBO bantamweight world title fight against Paulus 'The Rock' Ambunda fought on home soil. He added that Ambunda has been preparing hard for this fight, so it will be good if Ambunda can get a chance to contest and win the title in his own backyard.
