Namibian boxer Paulus Moses has quit boxing after he was defeated by Emmanuel Tagoe at the Bukom Boxing Arena last Saturday.
The 40-year-old former WBA world lightweight title holder said he had seen it all in the ring after several years of dedicating his life to the sports and this was the time for him to bow out.
In a shocking announcement of his decision after his defeat, the Namibian expressed gratitude to “Game Boy” for deciding to fight him for the vacant title and wished the Ghanaian boxer well in his future endeavours.
“I just want to announce that this is my last fight, you know I am 40-years-old now so this is my last fight, congratulations to Emmanuel Tagoe,” Moses declared after the judges called the bout 120-109, 120-110 all in favour of Tagoe.
Moses, who now has 45 fights under his sleeves with 40 wins and 25 by way of knockout, brought his experienced to bear during his fight against the Ghanaian opponent as Tagoe had a difficult time before securing a unanimous verdict in the bout.
The Namibian would be proud to hang his gloves now having defeated boxers such as Yusuke Kobori for the WBO world lightweight title, Andrey Kudryavtsev for the WBA Inter-Continental lightweight title, Cassius Baloyi for the WBO International lightweight title.
