Gcina Makhoba, the World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Super Flyweight Champion, put on a destructive performance when making his first title-defense on Saturday night, February 27, at the Portuguese Hall in Durban, South Africa.

Clearly ready for bigger things, Makhoba stopped fellow KwaZulu-Natal resident Thulani Gumede in the third round, improving his professional record to 6-1-1 (2). The challenger falls to 7-2-1 (3).

Showing class, maturity and power, Makhoba went straight to work from the first bell and clearly won the first two rounds. Gumede tried his best to turn the tide, but always seemed a step behind.

In round three, the champion landed a perfect body-shot which made Gumede turn his back, grimacing in pain, forcing referee Elroy Marshall to jump in and wave the fight off at 0:48. It was later revealed that Gumede had broken a rip.

The fight headlined a card promoted by Starline Boxing Promotions.
