Am coming to destroy you in your backyard- Godoy dares Kautondokwa

Argentina’s professional boxer, Billi Godoy has gotten on the nerves of Namibia’s ruthless boxing giant, Walter “The Executioner” Kautondokwa by sending him a message this week that he is coming to wreck him in his own yard.

The provocative message has been interpreted by top-flying boxing stable, Sunshine Academy as too strong while Godoy has already predicted to floor Kautondokwa by a knock out.

The short message which was sent via the Argentine’s promoter read, “I have heard so much about Walter, and it is time to bring (the) curtain down on him. I am coming to destroy him in his own backyard and I will definitely win by a knockout to teach him a good boxing lesson.”

Godoy will face Kautondokwa on the 20th of March at Ramatex in an Independence boxing celebration titled “The Legacy Fight” in honour of His Excellences, founding father Dr. Sam Nujoma, Dr. Hifikepunye Pohamba and sitting president Dr. Hage Geingob.

Responding to the message, Kautondokwa who will feature in the main bout in defence of his WBO Africa Middleweight title reduced the boisterous Godoy to a mere boy without respect.

“This boy Godoy has no respect threatening me in my own country, so many of them have come here to say the same thing and I always refer them to my 94% knockout ratio. I take Godoy very seriously as an opponent, I am now rated number 3 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,” said the stout pugilist.

The Legacy Fight will see three WBO Africa titles, with the main bout seeing Godoy vs Kautondokwa, the main supporting bout having the WBO number 5 Jeremiah “Low Key” Nakathila vs Patrick Okine for the WBO Africa Jr Lightweight title and WBO number 14 Mike Shonena vs Idd Pialari for the WBO Africa Welterweight title.

There will be 11 exciting undercards including Harry Simon Jr. Live entertainment with the likes of Destruction Boyz from SA and One Blood will entertain the fans right after the boxing making this a real entertainment feast.
