Meng, Rossing, Mafoud, Poulsen Win Bouts in Nykobing Falster

By Per Ake Persson

Nykobing Falster, Denmark - Local hero, 19-year old super welterweight prospect Oliver Meng, 5-0, won the vacant IBF Youth title in impressive fashion as he knocked out Tanzanian Maono "the Monster" Ally, 9-4-1, in two explosive rounds.

Ally, wearing John Dickson´s trunks, came out fast and landed with some hard punches. Meng took them well and retaliated. At the end of the round there was a tough exchange of punches that saw both stunned but Meng came out on top and in the second Ally gradually fell apart and Meng, a southpaw, worked him over to the head and body. Ally was hurt and went down and out at 2.15 and it took a few minutes before he was able to get back on his feet.

Female featherweight Sarah Mahfoud, 8-0, won the vacant IBF I/C title with a unanimous decision over South African Bukiwe "Anaconda" Nonina, 14-4-1.  Mahfoud had problems early on with Nonina´s longer reach but upped the pace in the fourth, broke through and from then on she dominated the fight and Nonina under pressure.


It was scored 100-90, 100-91 and 98-92. A world title fight could be next for Mahfoud and a showdown against WBO super bantamweight queen Dina Thorslund lso from Denmark, lingers in the future.

Super lightweight Enock Poulsen, 10-0, showed again he´s one to watch as he took apart Nicaraguan veteran Berman "La Cobra" Sanchez, 28-8,3 and won on fourth round knockout at 2.09 of the fourth. It was scheduled for eight.

Cruiserweight Ditlev "D-struction" Rossing, 11-0, took apart Georgian Zura Mekereshvili, 17-23, and stopped him at 2.43 of the fifth. Mekereshvili looked quite overweight but knew how to make it difficult for Rossing, who had to be careful and watch out for his opponents dangerous hooks. Rossing stalked Mekereshvili patiently and wore him down with a steady jab and good body shots. In the fifth Mekereshvili was a spent force, he bled badly from the nose and Rossing upped the pace - and then towel came in and it was all over.

Super welter prospect Allan Mahfoud, 3-0, outscored John "La Sombra" Dickson, 6-1, from Spain in a good, fast paced six-rounder where both gave their all. Mahfoud won on scores of 60-54 twice and 59-55 - numbers that don´t reflect that it was close all the way with Mahfoud a little sharper and precise with his punches. The Dane was shaken in the sixth and last round but Dickson was too tired to follow up.
