Ndlovu retains IBF 122lb belt

By Gabriel F. Cordero

IBF super bantamweight champion Takalani Ndlovu (33-6, 18 KOs) retained his title via twelve round split decision against Giovanni “El Ruso” Caro (22-10-4, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Palenque de la Feria in Colima, Mexico. Ndlovu recovered from an early knockdown to win 114-113, 114-113 on two cards. Caro, who seemed to deserve a better fate, was up 114-113 on the third card.

Also, female flyweight Ava Knight (7-1-3, 4 KOs) became the new IBF world champion by knocking out previously unbeaten reigning beltholder Arely Muciño (14-1-1, 8 KOs) at 45 seconds into the second round. The bout ended when Knight connected with a straight left followed by a right hook to the chin dropping her hard to the canvas where referee Jesus Salcedo waved it off.
