Layla McCarter in ring with Simone Duarte

In the main event, Simone Duarte of Sao Paulo, Brazil, won by Majority Decision against Unathi Myekeni to win the vacant WBA International title. Judges scores were: 96-94, 97, 94, and 95-95.

In a ten round welterweight bout, Noni Tenge scored a 9th round TKO over Sylvia Zacarias. This was Tenge's first fight since her first defeat in September to Layla McCarter by 8th round KO.

Zacarias gave Tenge a close fight and many ringside observers had her slightly ahead when she was went down after a quick combination executed by Tenge.

In a bantamweight four round female fight, Siphosethu Nxazonke with a record of 1-2 bested her opponent Melissa Miller (debut) by unanimous scores of 40-36.

The co-main event was the South African Featherweight Title Eliminator. Scheduled for 12 rounds, between Lusanda Komanisi Nkosana Sobethu, it became apparent early on that Sobethu was in over his head as he was knocked down numerous times throughout the fight until the 8th round when the referee finally stepped in to save him from more punishment. Komanisi was composed, dominant, and had the confidence of a young lion. Now 16-2, Komanisi looks to take on the S.A. champion for the title in the near future.

Giovanni Bushby Jr. quickly disposed of Leon Mriba by TKO in the first round of a scheduled 6 rounder.

Flyweight Mandisi Mnkile won a four round decision, 40-36 unanimously against Nwabisile Cholani.

Straw weight Siseko Nkohliso won his debut by TKO in 1 min, 20 sec of the second round.

The action was supervised by S.A. Boxing and WBA supervisor Stan Christodoulou. Referee Tony Weeks of Las Vegas was the referee for the main event between Myekeni and Duarte. Layla McCarter and Luis Tapia also from Las Vegas, were television commentators alongside former champion and South African boxing icon Dingaan Thobela "The Rose of Soweto."
