…Claims Argentinian boxer has no respect
By Sports reporter
NAMIBIAN pugilist Walter Kautondokwa said that the verbal threats by Argentina’s Billi Godoy are serious and not to be taken lightly, as the two prepare for a match in which the local boxer is expected to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Africa middleweight title on 20 March at Ramatex.
The fight dubbed ‘The legacy fight’ will be staged in recognition of President Hage Geingob, former President Hifikepunye Pohamba and Founding President Sam Nujoma. The organisers are expecting to attract a huge crowd to the event.
Godoy had earlier indicated that he has heard so much about Kautondokwa and promised to “bring the curtain down on him”. The Argentinian further vowed to destroy Kautondokwa “in his own back yard… by a knockout in order to teach him a lesson”.
Godoy made these remarks in a recent media statement ahead of the title fight.
The Namibian boxer did not take kindly to Godoy’s threats adding that the challenger has no respect threatening him in his own country. Kautondokwa stressed that many others who came to Namibia with the same attitude as Godoy as well went back to their countries hurting.
“They all come here to say the same thing but I always refer them to my 94 percent knockout.
I take Godoy very serious as an opponent and I am now rated number three, and a win might see me contend for the title so this fight is important to me and perhaps the most important fight of my career so far. I promise the fans another win and as for Godoy, I do my talking in the ring,” Kautondokwa explained.
