RESULTS FROM SOUTH AFRICA
Noni Tenge W10 Mapule Ngubane... In Johannesburg, South Africa, Noni Tenge fended off compatriot Mapule Ngubane in a women's junior middleweight bout. Tenge (18-1-1), was a step ahead of the South African female middleweight champion Ngubane (6-5-3), and boxed her way to a unanimous decision. In round eight, she scored a flash knockdown with a left hook, but Ngubane had no problems beating the count. Official scores: 98-91 and 97-92 (twice).
Unathi Myekenin W10 Asandiswa Nxukwena... On the same show, Unathi Myekenin (11-4-1) beat late substitute Asandiswa Nxukwena (6-2-1) in a women's featherweight contest. This was a rematch of a fight for the South African national title earlier this year, where Nxukwena stopped Myekeni in nine rounds. Myekeni was originally scheduled to fight Ruth Chisale, but the Malawian was unable to make the weight, and Nxukwena stepped in on a few days notice. Official scores: 98-92 (twice) and 97-93. source for both results: wbf
