Promising South African heavyweight Flo Simba was stopped in the sixth round by veteran Francois Botha on Saturday night for his first defeat in 11 professional fights. The 21-year-old Simba was rocked by two big right hands from Botha - 21 years his senior - and the referee stepped in soon after with Simba out on his feet. Botha, who lost to Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield in his career, improved to 48-5 with three draws and one no-contest. Simba looked to dominate a seemingly out-of-shape Botha early, landing his trademark right hook in the first round. But Botha used his experience to ride Simba's onslaught and caught the youngster with two right hands and then a combination later in the sixth.
