  • Description

    FOLLOWING HIS EASY WIN OVER KAHU MAHANGA AT FESTIVAL HALL IN MELBOURNE COMMONWEALTH MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION BUNNY STERLING HAS SET HIS SIGHTS ON HIGHER ASPIRATIONS.

    STERLING HAND NO TROUBLE AT ALL WITH MAHANGA ON HIS FIRST TITLE DEFENCE, WINNING NEARLY ALL OF THE FIFTEEN ROUNDS WITH EASE. THE CRISP-PUNCHING LONDON-BASED JAMAICAN WAS IN CONTROL RIGHT FROM THE OPENING ROUND, WHEN HE CAUGHT MAHANGA WITH A SERIES OF LEFT JABS THAT FORECAST WHAT WAS TO VOME.

    MAHANGA'S INEXPERIENCE BEGAN TO SHOW IN THE MIDDLE ROUNDS.--WHEN ALL HE COULD DO WAS TO SMOTHER UP AND LAUNCH SPORADIC ATTACKS, MOST OF WHICH FAILED.

    THERE WERE NO KNOCK-DOWN,. AND THE REFEREE'S ACTION DECISION AT THE END OF THE FIFTEENTH ROUND CAME AS NO SURPRISE. MANY RINGSIDE EXPERTS GAVE STERLING TWELVE OF THE FIFTEEN ROUNDS, WITH THE OTHER THREE DRAWN.

    MAHANGA WAS NOT DISGRACED...Merely outclassed. HE STILL HAS A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE HIS STRENGTH WILL BE OF REAL USE IN THE RING.
