Killa faces another tough test

Charles ‘Killa’ Whittaker takes another step towards a world title shot when he defends his United States Boxing Association junior-middleweight title.

Whittaker, 39, faces American Demetrius Hopkins at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday hoping that if he wins it will lead to a world title fight.

Killa has a record of 39 wins (23 KOs) with 13 losses and two draws. Hopkins, 34, has won 32 of his bouts, including 12 KOs, lost twice and drawn once.

Whittaker said: “I’m well prepared and I’m going to win by whatever way I can.”
