Two World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa title fights are set to take place in South Africa, on February 19 and February 20 respectively.
On Saturday February 19 at the Multipurpose Center in Nongoma, Kwa-Zulu-Natal, local favorite Khumbulani “Flint” Mdletshe faces compatriot Lybon Ntshani for the vacant WBF All Africa Welterweight title, on a show promoted by Ludonga Promotions.
Mdletshe, 8-3 (6), enters as a slight favorite, mainly due to being the more experienced fighter, but Ntshani, 3-1 (3), who won the Gauteng provincial title in his most recent outing, is coming to win and knows he has the power to prevail.
On Sunday February 20 in Venda, in a pure fifty-fifty match-up, TLB Boxing Promotions will stage South African Junior Makondo against Jacques Tshikubu Muvud from D.R. Congo for the vacant WBF All Africa Super Welterweight crown.
26-year-old Makondo, 7-5 (7), has the less flattering record, but probably has an advantage in power, while Tshikubu Muvud (28), 7-1 (4), may be the better technician and is full of confidence coming off a win in South Africa last September.
