Warren Joubert came back after eleven months to score a hard-earned unanimous eight round points decision over oft-beaten Master Mangalazi in a junior welterweight bout at Carnival City near Brakpan on Thursday night. Unfortunately Joubert fell into the trap of following his back-peddleling opponent around ring throughout the fight. Joubert ups his log to 19-3-5; 11 and Mangaladzi falls to 2-8-1; 1.
In a fight that was billed as a grudge match welterweight Jarred Silverman proved to be the better boxer as he outpointed the promising Stone van Aswegan over eight rounds.
Other results: Junior middleweight; Stanis Kulondi beat Vusi Bilankulu, pts 4; Super middleweight: Walter Dlamini beat Hansen Baloyi, pts 6; Junior heavyweight: Deon Coetzee beat Jean Lutete, pts 6; Middleweight: Dowayne Combrink beat Daddy Mpinga, tko 1.
The Box and Dine tournament was presented by Manny Fernandes of BRD Promotions.
