Mboyane wins vacant SA title!

By Ron Jackson

In a grueling encounter Klaas Mboyane shocked the local fans when he stopped the more experienced former South African and WBC international flyweight champion Nkqubela Gwazela in the eleventh round to win the vacant South African bantamweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon. The title became vacant when Siphiwe Vetyeka won the vacant IBO bantamweight belt at Emperors Palace earlier this month. The southpaw Mboyane (115) looked rather tight as he came out for the first round and was out-punched and backed up by the confident Gwazela (116.6). However, Mboyane did well in rounds two to four as he backed up Gwazela to score with stinging rights and lefts to the body and the head as he varied his attack. In rounds five and six Nkqubela fought of the back foot and used his longer reach to score points and possibly shade the rounds. (more…)

Roger Mayweather arrested!

Top trainer Roger Mayweather, uncle of Floyd Mayweather, has been arrested and charged with coercion with force and battery strangulation. Las Vegas Metro Police arrested Mayweather on Sunday after the top trainer and former fighter attacked one of his former boxers, Melissa St. Vil.
