Botha comes back with win, calls out Golota

Francois Botha W12 Bob Mirovic... Francois Botha beat Australian journeyman Bob Mirovic on points over twelve rounds in South Africa on Friday night.  The South African veteran made a winning return to the ring after a five-year absence, handily winning on the scorecards by tallies of 119-109, 120-108 and 120-107.  Botha is now 45-4-2,while Mirovice haslost three in a row to fall to 28-19-2. Anyone who believes in the legitmacy of the title belt that Botha was awarded for beating the 41 year old Mirovic should have his head examined, but Botha was at least reported to be in good shape. After the bout, the 38-year-old Botha told local media his next fight was likely to be in Durban, South Africa later this year against another big name from the 90s, Andrew Golota. source: supersport zone
