In the main event of the World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Convention Boxing Galla in Cape Town, South Africa, on Friday night, March 24, local star Wassim Chellan won the WBF All Africa Welterweight title, dethroning reigning champion and fellow countryman Lybon Ntshani.

In what was nothing short of a thriller at the packed Sunningdale Sports Complex, the fight was non stop action from first to last bell with both fighters throwing every punch with the intend to knock the other man out.

Chellan was the sharper boxer, and his incredible work-rate won the majority of the rounds and in the end a deserved unanimous decision by scores of 97-93 (Judge Bernd Hupfer), 97-93 (Judge Bulcsu Gabris) and 98-92 (Judge Patrick Mkondiwa).

The new WBF champion remains undefeated at 7-0 (3), and looks like someone to look out for in the future. Ntshani drops to a very deceiving 4-3-1 (4).

The certain candidate for WBF Fight of the Year was a fitting climax to what has been a fantastic WBF Convention, with delegates from all over the world at ringside and officiating the fights on a great card promoted by Jackie Brice Boxing Promotions.
