Review: 2014-02-01, nice exchanges from the first bell and spectacular finish: the fight between Nkosinathi Joyi and Rey Loreto is very close to get four stars!! Nkosinathi Joyi entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 24-2-0 (17 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.5 light flyweight in the world, he lost two out of his last four fights, the first one against Mario Rodriguez in 2012 and the second one to Hekkie Budler last year, both bouts were valid for a world minimumweight title (his natural division).
His opponent, the 23-year-old Rey Loreto (eight years younger than Joyi), has an official record of 17-13-0 (9 knockouts) and he entered as the No.21 in the same weight class. Joyi vs Loreto is valid for the vacant IBO light flyweight title, both fighters are at their first world title shot in the light flyweight division; fight on the undercard of Gennady Golovkin vs Osumanu Adama.
