Gomes stops Pretorius in the fourth round

Making the first defence of his South African heavyweight title,
Keaton Gomes had to come back from a badly cut eye to stop Joshua
Pretorius in the fourth round.

Gomes made a fast start as he took the fight to the slow-moving
Pretorious through rounds one to three.

In the fourth round, Gomes scored with a big right hand that sent the
challenger down and out against the ropes as referee Jaap van
Nieuwenhuizen waved the fight off at 1 minute 10 seconds in the round.

Gomes improved his record to 10 wins, eight by way of knockout and
only two losses.
