Gideon takes Hekkie's title
Gideon Buthelezi won the IBO junior flyweight title when he beat Hekkie Budler on a split decision.
After 12 rounds the scores were 118-114(Terrance Makaluza) and 115-113 (Matteo Montella) for Buthelezi and 117-113 (Lulama Mtya) for Budler.
Buthelezi, 24 years old, who also holds the IBO strawweight title, but has to decide which belt he wants to hold onto going forward, spent most of the night back-pedalling but landed enough counterpunches to take the decision.
Buthelezi landed the cleaner punches throughout the 12 rounds. Buthelezi was good on the outside landing cleaner, crispier punches while Budler wanted to keep close and bang the body.
Buthelezi won the first three rounds when he lured Budler into a brawl. Budler, 22 years old, then dug himself out of the hole but left himself open to the southpaw's left too often to take control.
Buthelezi, had lost in two amateur bouts to Budler, but won the one that counted.
Buthelezi raised his record to 12-2-0 (4) while Budler lost for the first time after 17 wins (5 inside the limit).
