Results Analysis - by Andre de Vries
Nkosinathi Joyi is considered by many to be the best boxer in South Africa. He is a former IBO and South African mini flyweight champion, and the current IBF mini flyweight champion.
He was stripped of the IBO title in 2009 because of inactivity, and faces the same fate from the IBF if he doesn't fight before the end of 2011. It's unthinkable that a fighter of his calibre has only six fights in five years.
I am aware that he has jumped promoters over the years, and also of the current black-out by SATV locally, but if undeserving fighters such as Gideon Buthlezi and the ancient Simphiwe Nongqayi can get fights overseas, surely the same can be done for Joyi before its too late.
Speaking of overseas, Takalani Ndlovu had a great win in Mexico when he beat Giovanni Caro to retain the IBF Junior featherweight title, and the brilliant Moruthi Mthalane stopped Andrea Sirritzu in Italy to retain the IBF flyweight title.
I wish to offer my sincere condolences to the Makhwelo family after the tragic death of Anele in Bloemfontein. The Makhwelo family have been a credit to the sport for two years. He will be sadly missed.
