    VISNEWS cameras were at the ringside in Sao Paulo's City Stadium Jan 16 when challenger LUIZ IGNACIO, Brazilian Middleweight boxing champion, beat holder DOGOMOR MARTINEZ, Uruguayan Champion on points over fifteen rounds to win the South American Middleweight title.

    Before a crowd of some 20,000 including many Martinez fans from Uruguay, the younger, stronger Ignacio battered his way to victory. From round 4 martinez was a very exhausted man, but managed to 'stand-up' even to the point of landing a few good hooks to Ignacio's jaw.

    The bout was a 'revenge' return match. martinez beat Ignacio at Montevideo a few months ago.
