Boxing Result

Waters stops Tagi

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO #9 Ryan Waters (18-2-1, 11 KOs) retained the WBO Oriental 154 pound title on Friday when he stopped Fijian Opeti Tagi (13-5, 6 KOs) in four rounds at the Cronulla Leagues Club, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Waters controlled the action as he boxed aggressively in all rounds contested. At :47 of round four referee Will Soulos crowned Waters to save Tagi from further punishment.

Tagi had previously boxed in Australia suffering losses to Gary Comer in 2003 by KO3 – Shannon McMahon by KO3 and Johnny Sheferaw by KO1 in 2004. Tagi currently holds the Fiji 140 pound title.

In a super middleweight action six round contest, Kurt Bahram (8-0, 3 KOs) outworked Aaron Ross (2-2) by scores of 58-56, 58-56, 59-55. Bahram is expertly trained by former national amateur champion David Birchell.

Hot prospect super middleweight prospect Michael Bolling (9-0, 7 KOs) stopped Kashif Mumtaz (5-12-1, 4 KOs) in round five. Mumtaz is a better boxer than his record shows so this was a good win for Bolling.

In a lightweight four round contest Brett Smith (5-0, 3 KOs) clearly outpointed Jerry Spandis (2-7-2) by scores of 40-36, 40-37, 40-35.
