Aloua scored a technical knockout in round nine
over Samoan warrior Faimasasa Tavui, and improved
his unbeaten record to 5-0 (4). Former Samoan
national Champion Tavui dropped to 19-11-2 (11).
The 24-year-old, who’s career is mainly based in
Australia where he is handled by multiple world
champion Anthony Mundine and Tony Mundine, boxed
very well from the outset and used his superior
technique to pile up the points and keep his more
experienced foe at bay.
As the rounds progressed Aloua showed remarkable
composure, while Tavui tried to get close without
much success and his face bore clear evidence of
the many punches landed by Aloua.
In round nine the referee called in the doctor to
inspect a massive swelling on Tavui’s right eye
and a possible broken nose, and decided to halt to
the bout at the 1:32 mark.
