It is without a doubt that Billy Corito, alias the “Hitman” is one of Malta’s best known professional boxers. Although he started his boxing career rather late at the age of 28 and turned professional just a couple of years later. Billy has done rather well for himself, with nine wins and just one loss.
Whilst Billy has retained a strong and ever increasing fan base, in recent months he has had some difficulty in getting opportunities to box locally. The lack of offers from local promoters is probably because Billy prefers to box on a German license from the BDB and under the Malta Boxing Commission (MBC) rather than license himself with the Malta Boxing Association, which (as the BDB) is affiliated with the EBU – European Boxing Union.
It seems that Billy is getting ostracised or shunned by some local promoters, who may be under the impression that if Billy Corito was to be included on their fight-card they might fail to get sanctioning for their event.
However where there is a will there is a way and Billy is soon back in the ring as the main attraction in “Fight For Life” a boxing night in aid of Caritas (Non-profit Charity Organisation).
This time around Billy will be facing a tough proposition in the form of LEE KELLETT, a professional boxer who hails from the UK and is a former participant of Euro Sport’s popular “Bigger’s Better” boxing competition.
The undercard of Fight For Life consists of no less than ten promising fights.

The popularity of combat sport in the Maltese Islands is undeniable. Week after week, boxing and kickboxing athletes are in action on the international platform, admittedly & true more abroad than in Malta itself – Our Maltese Brave-hearts battle on and have not let the lack of local, regular competition deter them from their moment of glory in the ring. Over the past few years results have been consistent, in the various combat sport disciplines; in the amateur, semi pro or professional ranks.
The 27th and 28th of January saw a number of Maltese boxers & kickboxers competing both in Malta and in Belfast Ireland.
On Friday, in Malta, the local popular boxer Billy “The Hitman” Corito, took on and beat Ian Toby at the Sky Club in Paceville, in the second round by TKO, in a semi pro fight. This was the eight straight win for the undefeated local hero.
On Saturday, in Belfast Ireland, the Ying Yang Kickboxing club of Fgura, Malta, up against Ireland’s Prokick Club. This time around our locals did not fare so well, and none of the Maltese on the fight card got positive results.
