Three of the four Khayelitsha based boxers who fought at the Fight For Change tournament came back winners. The event, hosted by Maxim Boxing Promotions on Friday night saw eight bouts with local and international battles. Former IBF Featherweight champ Sinethemba Bam lead the charges with his hard hitting knocks and overwelm Port Elizabeth’ Simon Mbande. Burundi born Khayelitsha based Edward Nyamwanda showed excited showmanship as he beat Lazola Jikazana on points. While Vusumzi Tyatyeka, a former IBF Junior Welterweight champion showed that he still had it as he outgunned DRC Congo’s Ilunga Masala.
