Fana wins vacant IBF belt

Mthalane keeps belt, Ndlovu, Takayama win

By Ron Jackson

Mzonke Fana won the vacant IBF junior lightweight title when he overwhelmed Cassius Baloyi at Carnival City, Brakpan, on Wednesday night. The scores of judges Neville Hotz 119-109, Alf Buqwana118-110 and Isaac Tshabalala 119-110 tell most of the story in what was a completely one-sided contest.

Fana (58.80kg) went on the attack in the fist round and stayed on his toes and on top of his opponent until the end of the bout. The sheer volume of punches, rather than power, won the fight and the belt for the hero of Khayelitsha, Cape Town, who has now claimed his second IBF junior lightweight belt. (more…)

Trainer Emanuel Steward added that Peter is “the most dangerous opponent Wladimir has fought in five years….not the same fighter that fought Vitali Klitschko….I think he’ll knock him out….I can’t see it going longer than five or six rounds and that’s stretching it.”

“I believe he knew,” WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao said today at the kickoff presser in Los Angeles for his November 13 bout with Antonio Margarito. “He’s the one who wraps his hands and he doesn’t know what’s in there?” Pacman called the “Tijuana Tornado’s” problem with illegal handwraps “a mistake.” Pacquiao said he took the fight because “I am a fighter and I am just doing my job.”

Margarito, making a triumphant return to California just two weeks after the State rejected him for a boxing license at a highly publicized hearing, made a point of thanking the State of Texas for granting him a boxing license. “Everything that happened in the past is over and now we are in the present,” he stated. “Forget about the past!” Complete presser quotes and more photos…
