Sunday, August 19 2012
TRINIDAD and Tobago’s World Boxing Association (WBA) Fedelatin and Fedecaribe and World Boxing Council (WBC) Cabofe Super Middleweight champion Kirt Sinnette has been sent a warning from Joey Vegas of Uganda.
Vegas the African Boxing Union (ABU) Light Heavyweight title holder will face off against Sinnette for the WBC International Light Heavyweight title at the Woodbrook Youth Facility, September 2.
The African champion, who is fighting out of London, has issued a stern warning for “The Technician” for their upcoming bout. “One morning whilst running through the jungle a young male lion leapt at me. I quickly turn around threw a left hook and an upper cut at the young lion and instantly broke his jaw. I then killed him and ate him raw. A punch like this is what I will bring to fight Kirt Sinnette. When he comes leaping in I will break his jaw with my left hook and upper cut the way I did the lion”, bragged Vegas
He said Sinnette has never faced an opponent as good as himself before. “I know when a boxer goes into another boxers’ back yard to fight him the outside boxer will have to beat him miserably to win that fight. However with my variation of styles I will confuse the day light of Kirt, this fight will not go the full distance; I will knock him out in 1 to 7”, expounded Joey
Joey said he has set up training camp in the jungle of Africa. “I’ve been sleeping on the bare ground in the gym I’ve set up in the jungle. I’m running hills in the forest, chopping wood and climbing the tallest trees to build my upper body. My protein is pure lion meat, my curbs is natural provision I get from the ground in the forest, I’m drinking spring water and bathing in the river. I am living a very rustic life in preparation for this fight”, said the Uganda boxer.
He said when the bell rings; he hopes Sinnette can navigate his way out of the square jungle when they reach on September 2. The two are fighting for the opportunity of a WBC title crack.
The technician on the other hand has been training at the Aranjuez savannah from 4 am and running the Chancellor twice a week to gain his ultimate condition. The 38-year-old twin island champion has a record of 21 wins, 17 by KO’s and one defeat at the hands of Jermain Mackey of Bahamas in 2007. He, however, returned the favour stopping Mackey in the 11th of their 12-round encounter at the Woodbrook Facility on December 12, 2009. The 30-year-old Ugandan has a record of 13 wins, six by KO’s, six defeats and a draw.
