Ratings As At September 2015
EXPLANATORY NOTES – September 2015 RATINGS
Female boxing was highlighted during the month of August and our ladies made South Africa very proud when Gabisile Tshabalala and Sharadene Fortuin captured the WBF featherweight and IBO bantamweight world titles respectively, Gabisile outpointed fellow South African, Unathi Myekeni while Sharadene outpointed Argentinean Maria Magdalena Rivera. Asandiswa Nxokwana captured the vacant IBO international featherweight title outpointing Raider Muleba. Noxolo Makhavu retained her national flyweight title stopping game challenger, Bongiwe Seyisi and another superb display of sheer excellence by prospect, Leighandre Jegels stopping Mexican Mairana Clausi in the 8 and final round.
Excellent stuff and well done to all our ladies and the Ratings Committee echoes the chairperson of BSA, Ms Ravele’s words that female boxing shouldn’t only be highlighted during woman’s month (August) instead there must be more activity for them and we would like to see more female boxing bouts taking place regularly as our female boxers have the potential to reach the highest levels.
Keep up the good work girls!
