Line 1: Line 1:
29 June Mbulelo Botile w rtd 8 Marlon Arlos, Fort Hare University Hall, East London, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. The wild punching, awkward Arlos (117¾), who was cut over the right eye in the first round, rarely threatened despite Botile (117¾) being initially off colour and lacking co-ordination. But once the champion got his act together it was always going to be just a matter of time. Landing good head punches in the fourth and applying pressure steadily through to the eighth session Botile was very much on top, but it was still a surprise when Arlos was retired before the ninth got underway.
