KO me in 4! Sowah’s Dreaming, After We Fight He’ll Be Having Nightmares, Decastro Retorts.

Bardney Lincolnshire’s Nathan Decastro has issued a chilling warning to his Ghanaian opponent, ‘Hitman’ Daniel Adjei Sowah, ahead of their upcoming World Title showdown at the University of Lincoln on Saturday 27th April, when the two protagonists face off for the World Boxing Union (WBU) Super Middleweight Championship of the World.

Decastro’s warning following posts on Social Media quoting a Ghanaian Newspaper article where Sowah states “I’m going to knock Decastro out in 4’ which clearly hit a nerve with the man whose ring name is ‘Nightmare’, whose response was. 

“Knock me out in 4! Sowah’s dreaming, after we fight he’ll be having nightmares.

“I’ve never lost full stop, let alone been stopped! 

“He needs to think, they call me Nathan ‘The Nightmare’ Decastro for a reason, I’ve stopped eleven of my fourteen opponents as a pro, I’m more than just a handful to contain, I’m a living Nightmare for my opponents in the ring, I’m fearless and relentless.”

Decastro, who is Ranked #4, by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) in their Intercontinental Ratings, then wryly smiled and shrugged before swiftly changing the topic of conversation.

“I’m so looking forward to the 27th, it’s been my dream to fight for a World title, specifically the WBU World title, not just because of my boxing heroes Ricky Hatton and my Promotor Lee McAllister had both won WBU World Titles, but also because Bracebridge Boxing Club, where I train, has a history with the title.

“Owner Denny Oliver’s son Kelly, a four time senior ABA Champion boxed for it in South Africa against Sebastian Rothmann. I’ve always looked up to Kelly so fighting for the same title as him is special.”

Decastro continued. “My first fight was 22nd May 2001 and from that day I knew I wanted to be a professional fighter and have the opportunity to be a Champion. 18 years later I’m getting the chance to make my dream a reality and challenge for a World title in my home City of Lincoln.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to my fans, who are really getting behind me. This show will be a sell out. It really means a lot to me to have that kind of support.

“I would like to say thank you to my team, my sponsors, who make this all possible, my Dad for all his time training me, pad work etc. Sam Vickers my Strength and Conditioning coach, Craig Barton my Dietician, my Physio Dale Hibberd, my Promotor Lee McAllister, thank you for putting such a storming fight card together as well as giving me the chance to fight in my home City and lastly my Girlfriend Rachel Casey.

Rachel has been my absolute rock for this show! She has done everything on her own, organising everything, selling tickets, she’s taken all the pressure off me so I can concentrate on training. What she has done is incredible. I’m a very lucky guy to have someone who really pushes me to be the best person I can be.”

Two-Time World Champ Harrison Returns On 8th Dec – Faces Ghana’s Annan in Glasgow.


On Saturday 8th December former two-time World Boxing Organization (WBO) World Champion Scott Harrison makes his welcome return to the ring, at the Glasgow Club in Bellahouston, Glasgow.

Harrison (27-3-2, 15 wins via KO), who was released from prison in July after serving three years of a four-year sentence for assault in Spain, is set to face Ghana’s Tackie Annan (11-6-0, 10 wins via KO)for the Professional Boxing Council (PBC) International Lightweight Championship.

Annan’s last visit to Scotland, back in October 2017,see the big punching Ghanaian knockout Aberdeen’s Nathan Beattie in the second round of their PBC Silver International Lightweight Championship contest at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen.

Without doubt the choice of Annan for his return fight, after so long out of the ring, shows the Glaswegian’s determination to take meaningful fights in his quest to regain ranking for future World Championship accolades, as Harrison made clear when he spoke earlier today.

“I’m really looking forward to the 8th December and getting back to work. I’ve not boxed in five years so it’s going to be a terrific night and I can’t wait.

“I’ve not got a lot of time left, so I’m looking forward to enjoying the rest of my career and hopefully win the World title again.

“To get in the position to challenge for my third World title I needed a good test on my first fight back, Annan’s proved himself, he won ten of his fights by knockout, including against Nathan (Beattie) last year.

“I’m in a good place mentally and physically, and I feel in good condition as well.I have had a full ten-week training camp, sparring has gone well and there haven’t been any distractions, so now I am really looking forward to getting back to work on the 8th of December and putting on a good performance in front of all the supporters.”

Scott Harrison versus Tackie Annan for the Professional Boxing Council (PBC) International Lightweight Championship takes place at the Glasgow Club in Bellahouston, Glasgow on Saturday the 8th December 2018.

Decastro: It’s My Destiny To Be World Champion.


Bardney, Lincolnshire’s Nathan Decastro (14-0-0) wholeheartedly believes it is his destiny to become World Champion. In just over a weeks time he finally gets the opportunity to make his childhood dream come true, when challenges Accra, Ghana’s Daniel Adjei Sowah (20-6-2) for the World Boxing Union (WBU), Super Middleweight Championship of the World at the Glasgow Club in Bellahouston, Glasgow on Saturday the 8th December 2018.

Decastro, who is currently ranked #6 in the International Boxing Federation (IBF) Intercontinental rankings, earned the shot for the WBU World Crown with a solid points victory over West African Boxing Union (WABU) Champion Agoe Ashong (11-2-0) to secure the Professional Boxing Council (PBC) Commonwealth title at Pride Park in Derby back in September.

Speaking from his home earlier Decastro could barely hide his joy at the opportunity to fight for his first World Championship.

“I’m buzzing, I just can’t wait. I mean not only am I fighting for the World title, but will be fighting for it on the undercard of Scott Harrison’s return to the ring, exciting times.

“My camps gone really well, I’m feeling fitter and stronger than ever. We’re not leaving anything to chance; we’ve covered every conceivable angle.

“My father Frank has made sure of that, he’s a great coach, I really am blessed that he trains me.

“We know he’s a banger, but so am I and what’s more I have a better KO ration of 11 in 14 against his 13 in 28 and more importantly I believe I am more hungry for this than him.

“It’s been my dream since I started boxing as a youngster to win a World title and now I’m just over a week away from making my dreams come true.

“Especially as I am fighting for the WBU Title, we have history with this Championship at the Bracebridge Boxing Club, as Kelly Oliver whose father owns the club also fought for the WBU crown, at Cruiserweight, so have to win it and bring the belt back to the gym I’ve trained at all my career.”

Decastro then went onto vent his frustrations over the way bureaucracy had thwarted his previous Championship efforts.

“I’ve had a really frustrating year or so, yes I won the Commonwealth title last time out but twice this year I was supposed to challenge for the World title.

“Unfortunately bureaucratic red tape caused the fights to be cancelled, either Visa issues came into play,as with the original planned fight against Agoe (Ashong) in July or worse still unnecessary political interference by the EBU, which scuppered the IBF European fight against Ronnie (Landaeta).

“This time though it’s different, Daniel has his Visa and the EBU can’t possibly interfere, so no excuses.

“It’s my destiny to be World Champion, come 8th December, my dreams will come true, I will be crowned World Champion as I owe it to my legion of fans that have been awesome and so supportive.”

Nathan ‘Nightmare’ Decastro versus Daniel Adjei Sowah for the World Boxing Union (WBU) Super Middleweight Championship of the World, is the main support for the highly anticipated return to the ring of two time WBO World Champion Scott Harrison(27-3-2) against Tackie Annan (11-6-0) at the Glasgow Club in Bellahouston, Glasgow on Saturday the 8th December 2018.
