Results Analysis - by André de Vries
Evander Holyfield stopped Fransie Botha in the eighth round to take Botha's WBF heavyweight title off him. The combined age of the two in the ring was nearly 90. Enough said.
In other world title action, Takalani Ndlovu again failed to win a recognized belt when Steve Molitor beat him for the IBF jnr featherweight title. Ndlovu is a former holdr of the IBO junior feather title. Ali Funeka really lost this time in a return fight against Joan Guzman for the IBF lightweight title after being robbed the last time they met, and Simphiwe Nongqayi only just retained his IBF junior bantamweight title with a draw against Malik Bouziane in France. The good news is that Nkisinathi Joyi lived up to his earlier promise by beating Rual Garcia to win the IBF mini flyweight title.
