Editors Comment

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.
