Boxing fans were treated to a flurry of punches when Insane Promotions hosted its inaugural fight at the Goodwood Prison recently

Insane Promotions head honcho Savarion Savvas said they were excited with the outcomes of the tournament despite “little hiccups”.

“Look this was our first tournament and we did fairly well and the boxers did not disappoint with their performances in the ring,” said Savvas.

In the main bout it heavyweight champion aspirant Ruan Visser three rounds to dispatch his foe to the canvass. Visser pummelled Congolose Mugaden Mudimba who could not sustain the attack on his torso.

Site C’s supermiddlweight hopeful Thembalani Makholwa showed why hsi trainer Zola Koti is held in high esteem by many ringsiders as he fought gallantly to beat Ludolf Pretorius.

Pretorius had sent Makholwa down in the first round but he did enough to knock him out in the third round.

Bongani Mbiko added yet another win to his record when scoring points decision over Zuluboy Mncube in the lightweight division.

Wade Hammond lost via a third round knock out against Antonio Muchala in a junior middleweight clash.

Tapiwa Jaravaza eked out a split decision win over Sinethemba Qampi in an exciting lightweight banter.

Meanwhile Boxing South Africa WC co-ordinator Andile Mickey Klaas reported that more than 30 new boxers were registered as professionals during a passout held in Phillipi last Saturday.

“We have new fresh boxers who are keen to make a name for themselves in the ring. I guess that’s challenge to promoters to stage more fights,” said Klaas.
