|BALOYI RETAINS TITLE|
On Saturday June 26th, at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, Scotland, World Boxing Union World Featherweight Champion Cassius Baloyi, of South Africa, took on Brian Carr, of Modiesburn, Scotland.
After 9 onesided rounds, the challenger's corner pulled their man out. Baloyi, a class act, was too strong and much too clever for a very game Carr. The Scottish challenger tried to get involved, but got cut a few times throughout the fight. Eventually Baloyi, with fast hands and throwing good combinations and spot-on punches, won the contest as Carr, heavily cut, failed to come out of his corner at the start of the 10th round. If his men wouldn't have pulled him out, he would probably have gone on for the complete twelve rounds.
Cassius Baloyi remains undefeated, his record improves to 22 wins, with 11 KOs. He is a former WBU world super bantamweight champion, and last year he won the WBU World Featherweight Title by stopping Domingo Damigella of Argentina in the 10th round. He recently switched trainers, Leaving Elias Tshabalala for the legendary Brian Mitchell.
Carr now drops to 19 wins and 3 losses, with 5 KOs. Last year he was stopped by Michael Brodie in the 10th round of their British and Commonwealth super bantamweight title fight. Earlier this year, he lost on points to Patrick Mullings in a fight for the vacant British super bantamweight title.
Referee: Freddie Steinwinder (Miss, USA)
