Paulus Moses Secures Win, Pushes For Terry Flanagan Title Shot

by Tamas Pradarics

The journey continues to former WBA champion Paulus Moses en route to a second world title at lightweight. The 39-year-old Namibian headlined a top card in the capital of his home country, Windhoek last Saturday, and stopped Saidi Mundi in overwhelming fashion in the fifth round.

Moses (40-3-0-1, 25 KOs) looked sharp and hungry and dominated Mundi with the jab until round three when he dropped the Tanzanian twice. The Windhoek-native former belt holder kept controlling the action and halted Mundi (19-4-1, 11 KOs) in round five after some beautiful and accurate combinations.

With the win, Moses defended his WBO Africa title for the third time and he is expected to maintain his No. 4 position by the WBO. Finding out the next targeted opponent in Paulus’s mind is far from rocket science.

“I am happy with this win and my performance tonight, now I want to step in the ring with the champion, Terry Flanagan. He can’t avoid me anymore, I am here and not going anywhere, I want to fight him and rob him of that title, that’s our next focus” said an excited Moses through his promoter Nestor Tobias to BoxingScene.com.

In the chief supporting bout of the evening, featherweight Sakaria Lukas extended his undefeated run to twenty with a third round TKO win over Mudde Ntambi Rabison (22-5-1, 7 KOs). Lukas (20-0, 14 KOs) defended his WBO Africa belt for the first time and is also in line to get a world title shot at 126 pounds, hence his No. 5 position by the Puerto Rican-based sanctioning body.

In the third regional title fight of the evening, super featherweight prospect Jeremiah Nakathila (13-1, 9 KOs) finished off Tanzanian Said Chino (13-6-2, 10 KOs) in round three to claim the vacant WBO Africa belt. Nakathila had already held the interim version of the belt before he got beaten by Evgeny Chuprakov last November in Russia. The Namibian up-and-comer is eager to take his revenge on his lone successor after a strong performance in his last Saturday bout.

“I would like to step in the ring with Chuprakov again. It will be a great rematch and this time I will definitely win,” discussed an elated Nakathila after the bout.

The ten-bout event took place at a packed Windhoek Country Club & Resort and was televised nation-wise by Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).

“I am extremely happy with the performance of Moses, Lukas, and Nakathila and the sky is the limit for them,” said Tobias, promoter of the event. The fight card was sponsored by MTC.

He is 39 and way past his prime. Perfect "title defense" for Flanagan

Hope not. Verdejo has the WBO number 1 slot, much rather see that.
