In has been said that to win in South Africa, you have to stop your opponent inside the distance -- and Sultan did just that.
Sultan (12-3-0, 8KOs) is the current Philippine super flyweight champion and is expected to rise in the world rankings with the victory over Tete (15-2-2, 11KOs), the oder brother of former IBF world superfly champion Zolani Tete, and ranked No. 14 by the IBF in the super flyweight division.
