Kenya's Conjestina Achieng has added the World Boxing Foundation middleweight boxing title to her IBF crown. The victory came as the corner of Argentine opponent Guillermina Fernandez threw in the towel 1:40 seconds after the opening bell. Achieng improved to 21-3, her fourth victory by technical knockout. Fernandez fell to 3-1. The bout at the Kenyatta International Conference Center started five hours behind schedule, resulting in an unruly crowd, which threw plastic bottles into the ring during the undercard. (AP)
