At the luxurious Bay Hotel in Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa local superstar Mzuvukile Magwaca retained his WBF All Africa Light Flyweight title on Saturday.
Magwaca put on a dominate performance against a resilient and game, but outclassed, Ghanaian Joseph Martey before eventually forcing referee Eddie Marshall to intervene in round nine, much to the delight of the sold-out crowd.
At that point the champion, who moves his professional record to 12-0-1 (8), was pounding a helpless Martey (8-3, 2 KOs), on the ropes, making it a well-timed stoppage.
In the evening’s co-feature WBF International Lightweight Champion Vusumzi Tyatyeka was given a tough challenge from Hungarian Gyorgy Mizsei Jr., although the home-man was in control most of the fight.
Tyatyeka eventually won on points after an entertaining bout, with judges Elroy Marshall, Clifford Mbelo and Rassie Erasmus scoring in his favor by scores of 117-111, 118-110 and 118-110 tallies. Tyatyeka is now 17-2 (14), and Mizsei falls to 12-6 (7).
