Boxing Result

Gare retains WBF belt

By Ron Jackson

In a poor fight attended by one of the smallest crowds in recent years, William Gare retained his Word Boxing Federation super middleweight belt when he scored a unanimous 12 round points decision over Roland Francis at the Wembley Indoor Arena south of Johannesburg on Saturday night. The 35-year-old Gare (26-14-1, 4 KOs) who was making his fourth defence was just too experienced and ring-wise for the 38-year-old Francis (24-12-5, 14 KOs) who was having his third fight in the last eight years. Gare was in control throughout in a fight that never rose to any heights and referee Eddie Marshall had an easy nights work. The judges scored it 117-111, 116-112 and 118-110 all in favour of the champion. The tournament was presented jointly by promoters Mxolisi Gumede and Reggie Hilman.
