    CONGOLESE BOXERS SWEPT THE CARD IN A TOURNAMENT AGAINST A CHAD TEAM RECENTLY IN KINSHASA. THE TOURNAMENT WAS PART OF THE CELEBRATIONS MARKING THE ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU'S FOUR YEARS IN POWER.

    THE NIGHT OF BOXING WAS HELD IN THE REVOLUTION PARK STADIUM ON THE 24TH OF NOVEMBER. THE FOURTEEN CONTESTANTS RANGED FROM FLYWEIGHTS TO MIDDLEWEIGHTS.

    IN EACH OF THE SEVEN FIGHTS, THE CONGOLESE HAD A DECIDED EDGE AND MOST OF THE EVENTS ENDED IN KNOCKDOWNS. AFTER THE LAST MATCH, WHICH COMPLETED THE CHAD ROUT, THE JUBILANT CROWD CARRIED THE WINNER AROUND THE ARENA.
