Former WBA Lightweight Champion Paulus Moses
WINDHOEK, Namibia—Former World Boxing Association lightweight champion Paulus “The Hitman” Moses (26-1, 18 KOs) will face Miguel Lombardo (15-9-1, 6 KOs) on Saturday at the Windhoek Country Club Resort in Moses’ home country of Namibia.
Lombardo hails from Argentina. Moses most recent opponent was also an Argentine, Sergio Omar Priotti. Moses scored a fifth-round technical knockout victory over Priotti in a spirited contest held on Nov. 25 in Windhoek.
“It is always inspiring to fight in my hometown,” Moses said. “These are my true fans. They want nothing more than to see me regain a world championship, and every win gets me that much closer to that goal.”
Moses’ promoter Don King wishes his fighter well against Lombardo
“I predict a knockout win for Paulus Moses on Saturday night,” King said from his office in Deerfield Beach, Fla. “I want everyone in Windhoek to know that I am cheering with you for Paulus on Saturday. Nothing would please me more than to have him fighting for another world championship soon. He is a tremendous fighter.”
