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”

Rodriguez Moloney04

Taylor, Kid Galahad victorious in Boston

By Jason Marchetti at ringside

Ireland’s Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Taylor (11-0, 5, KO’s) totally dominated Cindy Serrano (27-6-3, 10 KO’s) over 10 rounds at lightweight. Taylor threw a combination, created space, cut off the ring, then threw another 1-2 combination. The equation worked well for her as Serrano could never mount any effective offense during the entire bout. Taylor made her opponent eat leather quite a bit as her impressive accuracy caught Serrano directly on the chin on many occasions. Serrano, to her credit, hung in there and didn’t quit despite having little chance of winning. Taylor retains her WBA and IBF Female Lightweight Titles. Final scores were unanimous on all 3 cards, 100-90

In an IBF featherweight title eliminator, Kid Galahad (25-0, 15 KO’s) outlasted Toka Kahn-Clary (25-2, 17 KO’s) by unanimous decision over 12 rounds. Galahad was busier than Kahn-Clary most of the night, neither fighters ever putting the other in any trouble. Galahad scored on the inside and seemed to press the action a bit more in which the judges agreed. Kahn-Clary was perhaps a victim of his southpaw stance by getting his foot stepped on throughout the contest. To Galahad’s credit, his defense didn’t allow Kahn-Clary to land any of his signature combinations and was able to keep him at bay outside of his striking range. Galahad scored through Kahn- Clary’s guard enough to earn the final scores, 118-110 (twice) and 115-113. Galahad will now fight the winner of Josh Warrington versus Carl Frampton in December.

Quigley beats Hernandez, remains unbeaten

By David Robinett at ringside

In the main event of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, Jason Quigley (15-0, 11 KOs) retained his NABF middleweight title with an entertaining ten-round decision over game but faded former welterweight title challenger Freddy Hernandez (34-10, 22 KOs).

In some respects, this was a disappointing performance by Quigley, who was never in any danger of losing, but was forced to go ten hard rounds with a 39-year old who was 4-7 in his last 11 fights coming in, with three of those seven losses by knockout. Nevertheless, Quigley controlled the action mainly behind his jab, relying almost exclusively on it in the early rounds, circling away from Hernandez and sticking him repeatedly as the well-seasoned veteran came forward.
