Mdantsane Indoor Center in East London had the distinction of hosting fight cards on both Friday and Saturday night and each evening saw explosive finishes in this Eastern Cape venue.
Saturday was the larger of the two fight cards, with four title belts on tap. Headlining the bill was the IBO Minimumweight Championship that saw reigning southpaw titlist Nkosinathi Joyi, 19-0 (15) stay on track with a second round KO of Lorenoz Trejo, 30-17-1 (7), of Mexico.
Heavyweight Osborne Machimana, 17-6-1 (12), solidified his grip on the South African title by seeing off Cape Town slugger Miyan Solomons, 9-6-1 (8), over twelve rounds in a rematch.
There were also two WBF title bouts, with local man Ludumo Galada, 13-0 (6), retaining his featherweight belt by knocking down Mexico's Pedro Navarrete, 23-5-3 (12), three times in the first frame to finish matters and Mdantsane native southpaw Lubabalo Msuthu, 10-2 (9), securing the vacant bantamweight crown with a seventh round KO of Cecilio Santos, 22-10 (3), of Mexico City.
On Friday, heavy-handed prospect Themba Joyi, 7-1-1 (6), hit the jackpot when stopping Thembelani Maphuma, 13-5-2 (4), in the sixth to win the South African Super Flyweight title.
Maphuma was making his first defense after having won the belt in August by decisioning Nkosana Sobethu in a rematch.
