After an exhilarating fight in Dundee, South Africa, Gcina Makhoba was declared the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Flyweight champion on Saturday night, December 3, defeating Filipino Robert Paradero for the vacant title.

Paradero silenced the patriotic crowd when he dropped Makhoba with a big right hand inside the first minute, but the local man came back strong and returned the favor shortly after, flooring the visitor to even things up.

The action continued in round two, with both men landing hard punches, and in round three Makhoba scored another knockdown to edge in front.

From that point on both men would stay on their feet, but it continued to be back and forth for nine more brutal rounds.

At the conclusion, judges Edward Marshall and Pumeza Zinakile both scored it 116-111, while judge Sipho Zondo had it 117-112, all for Makhoba.

The new WBF world champion improved his professional record to 9-1-1 (3). Paradero, coming up short in his third world championship opportunity after also losing two bids for WBA titles, drops to 18-4-1 (12).

Also on Saturday night, in Vienna, Austria, a fight between Michaela Kotaskova and Mahjouba Oubtil, with the vacant WBF Womens Intercontinental Welterweight title at stake, ended in a majority draw.

After a very even fight, judges Rainer Schwarz and Gerhard Sigl scored it five rounds each, 95-95, overruling the 96-94 score for Kotaskova from judge Norbert Duernberger.

From the Czech Republic but based in Austria, Kotaskova´s record is now 2-0-2, and Oubtil, a Moroccan fighting out of Italy, goes to 4-2-1 (1).
