On Saturday, May 7, at the Studio Maman Angebi in Kinshasa, D. R. Congo, undefeated local Heavyweight Issa Kayembe captured the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa title.
With a lively crowd cheering him on, Kayembe defeated co-challenger Vincent Muziri from Zimbabwe in convincing fashion.
Kayembe got off to a relatively slow start, but picked up the pace and his output significantly in round three, before eventually getting the stoppage in round five.
At that point Kayembe was dominating to a point where Muziri was not able to defend himself, and referee David Van Niewenhuizen from South Africa had seen enough.
Kayembe improved his professional record to 6-0 (4), while Muziri falls to 7-4 (4).
The fight was promoted by Adolph Katende and his V. Club Promotion.
