Thato Bonokoane completely resurrected his career when he won the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Bantamweight title on October 9 in Gqeberha, South Africa.

The WBF Intercontinental champion going in, but with a mediocre 13-5-3 (9) record despite coming off two excellent title-defenses, Bonokoane defeated Argentinian Diego Alberto Ruiz by majority decision.

It was a magnificent fight, reportedly a leading candidate for WBF Fight of the Year, and by deservedly winning Bonokoane proved that you can come back from rough patches and reach the top.

Between 2019 and 2021 he only won two of seven fights, but now he is champion of the world, and the WBF Boxer of the Month for October.
