  • Description

    ITALIAN BOXER SANDRO MAZZINGHI IS STILL THE WORLD JUNIOR MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION. HE RETAINED HIS TITLE AT THE SYDNEY STADIUM ON MONDAY NIGHT AGAINST AMERICAN RALPH DUPAS WHEN THE REFEREE STOPPED THE BOUT IN THE 13TH ROUND.

    MAZZINGHI -- HIS LEFT CHEEKBONE BADLY GASHED WHEN HE WAS BUTTED IN THE SIXTH ROUND -- VIRTUALLY HAD A TIRED DUPAS AT HIS MERCY AS THE BELL SOUNDED FOR THE 13TH ROUND.

    TWENTY SECONDS LATER, MAZZINGHI CAUGHT DUPAS WITH A POWERFUL RIGHT TO THE JAW. THEN, MOVING INTO A SUSTAINED ATTACK, HE FORCED THE AMERICAN ON THE ROPES WITH A RIGHT TO THE CHIN, FOLLOWED BY TWO MORE.

    THEN CAME THE FINAL SHORT AND DEVASTATING RIGHT TO THE JAW WHICH SENT DUPAS TUMBLING TO THE CANVAS A MINUTE AFTER THE START OF THE ROUND. DUPAS MANAGED TO GET TO HIS FEET AFTER A COUNT OF SIX, BUT WAS COMPLETELY HELPLESS AS MAZINGHI MOVED IN WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS RIGHT TO THE JAW.

    DUPAS SANK TO THE CANVAS. THE REFERENCE TOOK ONE LOOK AT THE AMERICAN AND STOPPED THE FIGHT.
