Kriel (C) wins.
South African Deejay Kriel (12-1-1, 6 KO's) scored a 12-round unanimous decision win over Filipino Dexter Alimento (12-2, 8 KO's) to claim the vacant WBC International Minimumweight Title Sunday evening (July 23) at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, South Africa. There were no knock downs.
The official scorecards from the all-South African panel of judges were 116-112 (twice) and 117-110 in favor of the 22-year-old Kriel.
With the win, Deejay Kriel is likely to be included among the top 15 minimumweight fighters by the WBC in the division where the world champion is undefeated 47-0 Chayaphon Moonsri (Wanheng Menayothin) of Thailand.
The Kriel vs Alimentor title clash was a production of South African's Golden Gloves Promotions.
