Kamanga Decisions Mandawe Over 12 Rounds

By Lwazi Ndzobongo at ringside: Paul Kamanga beat Biotsepo Mandawe via unanimous points decision to claim the WBA Pan African junior welterweight title on Tuesday night.


Kamanga was a deserved winner with scores of 117-112, 117-111 and 116-112 here at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park.


Kamanga got off to a fast start, using his superior boxing skills to outwork Mandawe by darting in and out. It was the Kamanga jab to the body that found it’s mark often and caused the taller Mandawe to never be set to throw his punches. When Mandawe did get a chance to throw, he was more interested in hitting Kamanga’s head off his shoulders and this resulted in him swinging at air as Kamanga could see the big punches from a mile away.


The action wasn’t always pretty, there was a lot of holding and pushing at times and the doubt never really captured the imagination of the packed house. Good win for Kamanga and his boxing skills still make him one to watch for the future, he improved his record to 12-0 (8), Mandawe’s dropped to 14-4 (10)
