Masoe camp confident!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBA middleweight champion Maselino Masoe (29-5, 27 KOs) will challenge current world champion Karoly Balszay (20-0,14 KOs) for the WBO 160 pound championship later today in Krefeld, Germany. Masoe’s manager Noel Thornberry is confident that his fighter has what it takes to win. “Masoe is in great shape for this championship fight against Balszay and we are confident of scoring an upset win. He has knocked out 27 opponents in a 36 fight career. He has KO power in both hands.” Masoe won the WBA middleweight title by stopping Evans Ashira in two rounds in 2004. He lost the championship to Felix Sturm over 12 rounds in 2006. Balszay won the WBO 160 title by outscoring the highly regarded Denis Inkin earlier this year.
