Johannesburg (South Africa) – Lance ‘Hulk Smash’ Ceronio (5-3) will take on EFC AFRICA newcomer Gideon Drotschie (1-0) at EFC AFRICA 17 on 23 November. Ceronio, an experienced and top ranked light heavyweight, can expect a tough welcoming encounter with the Capetonian who promises to make the most of his debut EFC AFRICA bout.
A boxer with 16 years experience and coming off a win against Mahmoud Salama, Ceronio plans to extend his winning streak. “I have been training hard and no injuries have held me back. I’m looking forward to a good fight which I would want to keep standing,” says Ceronio.
With his background in Jiu-Jitsu and Judo, Drotschie’s strongest attribute is his ground game. “I am feeling great and ready for the fight. Training has been going well and I have been waiting so long to compete in EFC AFRICA. I am hungry for a win. My quest is to chase the belt and I am coming for Lance,” says Drotschie.
This match-up plus the other nine prelim bouts are broadcast exclusively to Nu Metro cinemas across South Africa.
