THE third installment in a series of boxing tournaments, hosted by Wild Coast Sun, was another thriller. Dubbed “War on the Shore 3”, the Friday evening sold-out affair was a clear indication that Wild Coast is fast establishing itself as an ideal boxing venue. Marcel Botha had an easy fight against Trinity Mhlongo in their middleweight encounter. Botha, trained by his father, former IBF heavyweight champion Francois “White Buffalo” Botha, stopped Mhlongo in the third round with a TKO.

In a lightweight fight, Brendon Naudé cruised to a unanimous victory against Luvuyo Msamo.
David Rajuli, who received much cheering from the crowd, stopped Xolisa Kana in the fourth round of their junior lightweight encounter. Heavyweight hard-hitter Ruann Visser didn’t even break a sweat as he disposed of Paul Mukele from the Democratic Republic of Congo barely a minute into the first round. Special guests at the event included former WBC Super middleweight champion, Thulani “Sugarboy” Malinga and Irvin Buhlalu, former South African­ lightweight champion.
