Speaking to our sports desk from Germany, Kiwitt, who is undefeated in his last three fights, said he feels glad to have another fight and winning is a realistic outcome for him.
Freddy secured his third successive win of 2022 in September after a comeback win over Ivan Rafael Matute Villanueva of Venezuela in Hamburg.
Ahead of Saturday’s fight, Kiwitt said he feels confident doing the business and is optimistic of a win as always.
“Every fight is the most important fight for me, because it will set me up for bigger opportunities. I have to win this fight on Saturday because I know I’ll have a big 2023,” Freddy said.
Commenting on his opponent the Liberian International boxer said he has not faced Ali Hasso but has only watched a few tapes of him.
” I respect everybody, but I don’t think he will hear the final belt” he said.
According to Kiwitt, the December 3rd fight is his last for the year and is confident of ending the year with a win.
“I just want to set an example for all people. If they believe everything is possible.
“What I can do, they can do. No difference. I’m honoured to represent my birth country. It’s still my dream to fight in Liberia one day,” Freddy told our sports desk via a WhatsApp interview.
“I have shown to people many times that I’m ready. I just need to get an opportunity to showcase my talent,” he added.
Kiwitt, who was born of a Liberian mother, Tutu Tour and German father Werner Kiwitt, said that his mother is huge motivation to his success in the sport.
“My mom always shouting and reminding my children. Of course, I know what I am fighting for. Of course, I want to fight for my country, but it is a motivation which is helping,” Kiwitt said.
