CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA SEES BOXING ACTION TOMORROW
Press Release: Kalakoda Promotions presents pro boxing at the Cape Sun Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa on Friday November 22nd. Nkululeko Vengenayi (8-3) squares off with Themba Tshicila (25-11-3) at super featherweight, while Osborne Machimana (18-7-2) and Elvis Moyo (3-5-2) are set for a heavyweight rematch of their draw.
The 30-year-old Vengenayi, originally from Zimbabwe but based in South Africa throughout a professional run that started in 2008, has only averaged slightly over two fights a year in the pro ranks.
Battle-tested South African Tshicila (37) is by far the more experienced of the two, with thirty-nine contests) on a resume that began in 1997. A former two-time Eastern Cape titlist, he has fought much bigger names than Vengenayi.
Former South African Champion Osborne Machimana and Elvis Moyo (3-5-2, 1 KO), another S.A.-based Zimbabwean, fought to a draw this past March, and they are now set to settle their unfinished business.
“The first fight between Machimana and Moyo ended controversially with a draw last time, and Moyo has told me that this time he won’t let it be close”, said WBF President Howard Goldberg who will be supervising the doubleheader.
The two WBF fights will be preceded by an undercard, including hard-punching 21-year-old cruiserweight Kevin “The Lean Mean” Lerena (8-0, 6 KOs) fighting at heavyweight.
