United underlined their title credentials with an emphatic 29-10 victory against defending champions Western Suburbs at Suburbs Park on Saturday. After an even first half, United stepped up the tempo after the break to eventually run in a total of five tries. This gave them an extra bonus point which saw them moving up to 42 points at the top of the log – now eight points clear of Suburbs who remain second.
Paulus “The Hitman” Moses retained his WBA lightweight title when he convincingly beat Takehiro Shimada on points at the Windhoek Country Club on Saturday night. Moses piled up the points with his razor sharp jab and although Shimada gave a brave performance, especially in the close exchanges, Moses was more industrious and had the higher work rate.
After a tentative start, Moses started landing his jab and some solid combinations by the third round although Shimada also got on some stiff hooks to the body.
