Boxing Result

Oosthuizen wins in first round!

By Ron Jackson

One of the brightest young prospects in South African boxing 21-year-old Thomas Oosthuizen fighting at super middleweight scored his eighth inside the distance win when he stopped Semanda Shabane from Uganda in the first round in Kempton Park on Wednesday night. Promoter Jeff Ellis of African Ring Promotions provided a night of entertainment for 1000 patrons at a Box and Dine which also included the well known rock band Clint and Co, at the Emperors Palace.

The taller Oosthuizen ( 76.06kg) showed maturity as he came out at the bell to size up his opponent from behind his southpaw jab before unloading with some big left hands that kept Shabane (73.94kg) on the back foot.

The stocky Shabane was unable to get past the long arms of Oosthuizen before he was backed up against the ropes where Oosthuizen scored with right and left combinations that left him on rubbery legs as referee Amos Lusenga stepped in to call the fight off at 2 minute 48 seconds into the first round.

In a heavyweight bout scheduled for six rounds Bull Muravha (99.98kg) was just too big and strong for Basil Rey (104.42kg) in scoring a third round technical knockout.

Other results: Featherweight: Ashley Dlamini beat Victor Kota, tko 2; Featherweight: Joey Stiglingh beat Gert Aries, tko 4; Lightweight: Charlie Weyers beat Sizwe Nkabinde, pts 4; Heavyweight: Dion Coetzee beat Kali Kelembe, pts 4; Heavyweight: Johnny Muller beat Sheldon Human, tko 2; Junior heavyweight: Sean Santana beat Heinrich van Bosch, pts 4; Heavyweight: Stephen Castle beat Robbie Lombard, pts 4.
