Australian light heavyweight champion Shane McConville (5-0-4, 1 KO) forced Kashif Mumtaz (5-13-1, 4 KOs) of New Zealand to retire at the conclusion of round four of a scheduled eight round main event at the Civic Center in Chinchilla, Queensland, Australia on Saturday. McConville, who captured the national title recently by defeating Daniel “Porky” Lovett in 2009, was in control of the contest in all the rounds. Pakistan born New Zealand based Mumtaz had taken WBA #15 and IBF #9 rated Les Sherrington the twelve round distance in 2009. He also lost a split decision to Porky Lovett in 2009. In the supporting bout light heavyweight Tim “Knuckles” Kanofski (8-1) won a six round points decision over Christopher Fox (1-5-2). Super middleweight Terry Lambert (3-8-1, 1 KO) stopped Marlon Toby (2-9) in four rounds.
