This issue is our ninth and I would like to thank all our readers
for their support of African Ring. As the sales of the magazine
have doubled, it is now time that we expand our base
and focus on distributing through the stores.
It was an easy night at the office for Manny Paquaio against
Joshua Clottey as he won virtually every round. The champion
went through the motions as if it was a sparring session.
Promoter Rodney Berman along with Jeff Ellis, Joel Berman
and I have decided to promote the popular and fast growing
sport of M.M.A (Mixed Marshal Arts).
The charismatic 22-year-old Jared Lovett who‘s suspension
from boxing ends in June 2011 is keen on pursuing M.M.A to
compliment his boxing career. Talks are that he will be sent
to the USA to train with the best. His suspension of course will
not allow him to fight in either of the sports until after the suspension has lapsed.
We look forward to a feast of boxing at the end of this
month. Golden Gloves and African Ring will jointly stage a
back to back extravaganza at Emperors Palace.
Another interesting fight to look forward to this month is
Nkosinathi Joyi’s challenge for the IBF minimumweight belt
against Raul Garcia in East London.
As usual our writers have produced the goods once more – happy reading.
