"If I do not win I will retire" - was the clear message from the tough Colombian boxer living in Mexico, Antonio Pitalua, who on Friday at the Foro Polanco in Mexican Federal District will battle Paul "Gravedigger" Munguia for the USNBC welterweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC). Munguia-Pitalua is being put together by Producciones Deportivas and RB Productions along with All Star Boxing. Telemundo will carry the card.
"I'm one hundred percent and ready to win, because winning will give me a chance to face Jorge 'Maromerito' Paez for his silver welterweight championship," said Pitalua (54-5-1, 48 KOs).
"I've seen Munguia's fights. He is strong, very fit and I like those kind of fighters. For example, Cosme Rivera (who lost) is a fighter who moves around a lot in the ring it makes things complicated for me. Opponents like "Gravedigger" are always going to be different and standing in front and I like that."
