'Mongoose' pummels Miyata

Jeffrey Mathebula treated Yoshinori Miyata so cruelly last Friday that the Japanese will probably want the "Mongoose" charged with war crimes.

Miyata, the first Japanese fighter to ever grace these shores, was punished so severely that referee Andre Smale had to intervene in the eighth round.

The brutality took place at the Carousel Casino on Friday.

Differing styles is what make fights, and the shorter, hard-hitting Japanese was perfectly designed for a thrashing.

Mathebula refused to let go of the WBC International belt, which he defended for the third time.

The fighter from Limpopo, who was ushered to battle by trainer Nick Durandt, did fine except for the opening rounds, when his legs were too far apart and robbed him of an early knockout.

He lifted his right leg every time he threw his right hand, and an immeasurable number of punches lacked fire power. But he bloodied Miyata's mouth and nose with his quick jab, and Smale said "No mas" (no more).

Earlier on in this Perfect Match bill of Branco Sports Production, Cletus Mbhele, a novice of only five fights, outclassed Siyabonga Nyanga, a more experienced fighter with 22 fights, throughout their six rounder in the bantamweight class.

Despite enjoying a weight advantage of about 4kg, Nyanga found Jabulani Malinga's charge too much to handle.

The least said about a six-rounder between Chris van Heerden and Msizi Qwabe the better. Van Heerden, the top prospect of 2007, won on points.

Michael Sangweni beat Jacque Stapelberg with a technical knockout (TKO) in round four, and Lesley Sekotswe beat Shadrack Makama with a first round TKO.
