Tyner punishes Chambliss, gets third round TKO

By Brad Snyder-The Undercard
Photos by Bob Ryder

This fight was ugly from the start with bad blood boiling over from previous social media posts and broken relationships. Somewhere welterweight Cortez Chambliss (4-1, 4 KOs) got caught in the middle, and even worse, in the ring. Lanardo Tyner (35-13-2, 22 KOs) had some sort of relationship with Steve Zepke, Chambliss’ manager. This launched into a personal feud, which didn’t bold well for the boxing prospect Chambliss.
Tyner Chambliss2
At the start, both fighters looked relaxed and ready for the battle. Tyner, with a 45-fight and 13-year experience advantage over Chambliss, caught Cortez early with what appeared to be a knockout and had veteran Referee Sam Williams appear to waive off the fight. There was so much confusion that Tyner was in the ropes celebrating and corners had jumped on the canvas. The fight continued without a clear explanation.

Makhense stops Bholo for Gauteng title

By Ron Jackson

Promising young junior welterweight Jabulani Makhense won the vacant Gauteng 140lb title with relative ease when he stopped the more experienced Gift Bholo in the seventh round in front of a raucous crowd at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Sunday afternoon. The well-conditioned Makhense (63.46kg) came out fast at the opening bell and coolly mastered the distance throughout the first three rounds scoring with left and right combinations to the head and body. This was the same pattern from round four to six with the gutsy and bloodied Bholo (61.86kg) not winning a round.

Andrade Victorious03
The taller, heavier, much larger Kautondokwa was slow to move and react and Andrade took advantage early, landing flush left power shots to the head.

During the first knockdown, Andrade’s two-punch combo caused Kautondokwa to fall awkwardly, that Andrade kept swinging and hit him while he was on the canvas in which no foul was called. Continue reading “Andrade beats Kautondokwa for WBO 160lb title”
