Ushona wins in seven

By Ron Jackson

The polished Betuel Tyson Ushona from Namibia was most impressive in scoring a seventh round stoppage win over Pius Dipheko of South Africa in a scheduled ten round welterweight bout at the Turfontein Racecourse near Johannesburg on Friday night. Through the first three rounds neither fighter dominated as they both used their slick defensive skills, but in the fourth round Ushona (66.30kg) after dropping the South African with an unintentional low blow began to score with fast left-right combinations. Showing all his experience Ushona began to dominate in the sixth round with some slick moves and midway through the seventh he moved in with a flurry of blows to the head that sent Dipheko (66.40kg) staggering across the ring before falling down on his knees, as referee Phillip du Randt waved the fight off at 1 minute 45 seconds into the round. Ushona takes his record to 22-0; 4 and Dipheko drops to 19-7-2; 3. (more…)

WBC strawweight champion Oleydong Sithsamerchai (34-0-1,12 KOs) barely kept his WBC crown as he scored a majority draw with four-time world challenger Pornsawan Por Pramook (22-3-1,16 KOs) on Friday at Kadchoengdoi Shopping Center in Chiengmai, Thailand. Oleydong dominated in the first four rounds with his counter attack tactic, however the show little by little turned to the challenger who tirelessly stalked the champion. The climax occurred in round six when Pornsawan successfully floored Oleydong with vicious body attacks, then he dropped the champion again but it was considered by the referee as a slippery. The action was a close affair from round nine as aggressor Pornsawan looked weakened, which allowed Oleydong to display his effective counterpunches until the final round. Scored: Franz Marti (Switzerland) 114-114, Benjamin Rendon (Mexico) 114-114 and Thawut Plumsamran (Thailand) 114-113 for the champion. Oleydong retained his WBC belt for the sixth time.

Each day I feel like I am in better physical condition for the great Bicentennial Gala.
