Mthalane KOs Nunez to retain IBF title

By Gabriel F. Cordero

IBF flyweight champion Moruti “Baby Face” Mthalane (29-2, 20 KOs) retained his title with a spectacular eighth round KO of Ricardo “El Matematico” Nunez (24-3, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City, Panama. Mthalane dropped Nunez in round one, but “El Matematico” roared back to drop Mthalane at the end of round three. The champion was not to be denied, however, as he battered Nunez to the deck in round eight as the bout was waved off. Time was 2:41.

Former WBA interim flyweight champion Luis “El Nica” Concepcion (26-3, 20 KOs) scored an eight round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Pablo Carrillo (9-1-1, 4 KOs). Scores were 78-74, 78-74, 78-75.
