Hammer-fisted rising star Jared "The Storm" Lovett may have punched himself to stardom on Saturday night by knocking out tough-as-nails Ronnie "The Punisher" Lategan in two rounds.

The south of Johannesburger, Lovett is now hot favourite for Boxing SA's Prospect of the Year award.

This 21-year-old light heavyweight campaigner is under the mentorship of Colin Nathan, who is rapidly building a reputation as one of the most respected young boxing coaches in South Africa.

Lovett first knocked Lategan down before finally forcing a stoppage with his fifth short-route win in as many fights while Lategan suffered his seventh defeat against 16 wins.

Lovett made his professional debut in April but has already set the boxing scene alight with his brutal power.

He proved beyond doubt at the Wembley Arena last Saturday that, if guided well, he has potential to reach the stars.

A record of some 2500 fans, mostly Lovett's followers, paid between R75 and R100 to witness this fight and they got value for their money from this exciting clash that formed part of Jeff Ellis' African Ring's "Southern Impact" programme.

l Meanwhile Lovett's stable mate, the exciting Hekkie "The Hexecutioner" Budler proved that his points-win against Ronald Parks in July was no fluke.

Budler punished Parks throughout their six rounder of this junior flyweight bout, and was deservedly pronounced a unanimous points winner. It was his eighth victory while Parks dropped to nine defeats from 19 fights.

l Anthony van Niekerk overwhelmed Emmanuel Duma with power in the sixth round.

l In another slug fest, Kyle Bothma and Veledzani Tshikalange, earned their purse with the former being declared a spilt decision winner.

Other results:

Middleweight: Sipho Ndlovu and Sebanda Shabane drew; Lightweight: Kyle Smith beat Dabi Radebe tko third, Lightweight: Jason Bedeman beat Sfiso Mthethwa tko third; Catchweight: Victor Temlett beat Khayeni Hlungwana tko third.
