Singaporean boxer Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan lifted the International Boxing Organisation (IBO) super featherweight title after he defeated Namibia’s Nathanael “Iron Fists” Sebastian at Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre on 20 October.
The fight went all the way to 12 rounds and was given the bout by unanimous decision.
Sebastian was announced as a replacement for South African Koos Sibiya last month after Sibiya sustained an injury.
29-year-old Ridhwan, who is now 9-0 and in undefeated as a professional boxer, told Channelnewsasia after the victory, “I wanted the knock-out but I’m still happy with the result as I lasted twelve rounds and I was still fresh after the bout. After this I’m going to go back to take a rest before going back to training again and working hard so that I can bring even more exciting fights to the fans.”
