ALA Boxing slugger Jonas "Zorro" Sultan was successful in his first foray outside of Asia, defeating Makazole Tete for the IBF inter-continental championship in South Africa. 

The 25-year old Sultan, a veteran of the Pinoy Pride series, made quick work of the hometown bet Tete, scoring a knockout in just the second round to claim his first international championship. 

Sultan improved to 12-3 in his professional career and extended his winning streak to three straight. 

Prior to his bout with Sultan, South Africa's Tete had won eight of his last nine bouts, including back-to-back wins. 

With the IBF inter-continental title under his belt, expect to see a lot more of Sultan in the Pinoy Pride shows.
