Results From Giza, Egypt
10.20.04 - It was a night of entertaining boxing at the Zamalek Club in Giza, Egypt last night, as enthusiastic fans saw local hero Ahmed “The Riot” Mustafa score another win, and move his unbeaten record to 6-0 (4). Mustafa out-punched countryman Ramadan Mahmoud (1-0 going in) from the start, and floored him in the first round of this super welterweight encounter. Mahmoud got up to survive the stanza, but in the next round it was all over. The swarming style of “The Riot” was too much for him, and the referee stopped the fight: Mustafa won by second round TKO.
