Photos: Vetyeka Batters, Drops and Shocks Chris John

Metro City in Perth, Western Australia - A big shocker took place on Friday, as IBO featherweight champion Simpiwe Vetyeka (27-2, 15 KOs) dominated and stopped the very long undefeated streak of WBA featherweight champion Chris "The Dragon" John (48-1-3, 22 KOs) with a six round TKO. John was defending his title for the 19th time. Vetyeka unifies the two titles. Vetyeka put the pressure on John in the fifth, beating up the Indonesian star. He continued to batter John in the sixth and dropped him in the closing moments. John and his corner informed the referee that he was unable to continue after the sixth.

How long can a 33 year old hold a feather weight title? Even in Australia? Simpiwe may have only earned a well payed beating down the road. His style takes too much energy, but at least he downed John.

John is way past his best. Hope he hangs em up now.
