IBF super flyweight champion Simphiwe "The Golden Master" Nongqayi failed to match his loud mouth and was stopped by Mexican challenger Alberto “The Monster" Rosas at :60 seconds of the sixth round at the Palenque de la Feria of Tepic, Nayarit on Sunday, Manila Time.
The trash-talking South African who almost engaged Rosas in a brawl at the weigh-in faced a highly motivated Mexican forcing Nongqayi to go down on one knee indicating he couldn’t take any more punishment at the hands of the tough Mexican.
With the win Rosas (32-5, 26 KO’s) avenged the defeats suffered by brothers Jorge and Francisco Arce at the hands of Nongqayi who dropped to 16-1-1, with 6 knockouts.
The Philippines world-rated AJ “Bazooka” Banal won an eight round unanimous decision over Rosas on May 5, 2007 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas while Rosas earned the title shot with a unanimous twelve round decision in a title eliminator against another Filipino Federico Catubay on November 13, 2009.
Jorge Arce, fighting on the undercard, demolished veteran former WBA super flyweight champion Martin Castillo with a knockout at 2:56 of the opening round.
Arce caught Castillo with a vicious body shot sending the veteran to the canvas to be counted out.
