Acosta-Moses Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Finally WBA interim lightweight world champion Miguel “Aguacerito” Acosta is headed to Namibia, where next Saturday he’ll face WBA regular world champion Paulus Moses. After a difficult negotiation with promoter Don King, Acosta signed the sent contract, making it clear that he didn’t accept the terms which bound him to DKP for five years. The adjustments were made Friday and submitted Friday night. The route from Venezuela to Namibia is a long one. First is a six-hour flight from Caracas to Sao Paulo. After a three-hour layover they will take an eight-and-a-half hour African Airlines flight to Johannesburg. Team “Aguacerito” will arrive in South Africa at 7:30AM on Sunday morning and after a two-hour layover they will catch a two-hour flight to Windhoek where they expect to be received by the event organizers.
