Kgotla "Bang Bang" Baeti lived up to his nickname when he floored Hugo Manqina in less than two seconds of the first round last Saturday night.

Their lightweight clash, which was scheduled for eight rounds, topped Golden Gloves' Box-and Dine tournament at Emperors Palace.

The event was attended by luminaries such as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Tokyo Sexwale, Jeff Hadebe, Ngconde Balfour, Sam Ramsamy, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Mthobi Tyamzashe, Stanley "Screamer" Tshabalala and Dali Mpofu.

Laila Ali was the guest of honour. She was later joined by her foe, Gwendolyn O'Neil.

Manqina went down twice at the echo of the bell.

When he got up after the second knockdown his legs wobbled like those of a newborn calf, and referee Tony Nyangiwe intervened.

Meanwhile, Lefombou Ngoma came back from the brink of defeat after six wins, all by knockout, to force a draw with Johannes Pietersen over six rounds in the junior middleweight division.

Richard Fernandez made an impressive comeback after a four-year break when he stopped tough competitor Tendani Monyai in the fourth round.
