Charles ‘The Killa’ Whittaker returns to the ring in Grand Cayman next month with the hope of eventually getting a world title shot.
Whittaker has been in intensive training for the past month for his first bout in a year.
It is at Camana Bay’s Arts and Recreation Centre on 11 June against David Toribo of the Dominican Republic.
It is for the NABF light-middleweight title.
Toribo, 31, has a patchy record of only 19 wins against 12 losses, but he has won his last three – the last two by knockout. At 31 he is six years younger than Killa who has a wealth of experience in his favour stretching back to 1993.
Whittaker is unbeaten since 2004 and although Toribo only boxed a month ago, the West Bay fighter is confident of victory and taking another step towards a world title.
With expert guidance from trainer Norman Wilson, the ring rust has quickly come off. Killa has a record of 36 wins, 12 losess and 2 draws and has knocked out 23 opponents.
This match promises to be an exciting one as both have good knockout records.
Making their professional debuts on the bill will be local middleweight Peter ‘Lightning’ Lewison and former Philippines amateur champion now based here, bantamweight Alfredo ‘Pacquiao’ Deano.
