The Black Panther Sharpens His Claws

Mikixi prepares to knock Potts out

Johannesburg (South Africa) – A clash of the heavyweight titans is dawning. With only eight days to go until fight night, Bernardo “The Black Panther” Mikixi, is ready to take his shot against the undefeated EFC AFRICA champion, Ruan “Fangzz” Potts. With an affinity for huge blows and ground and pound, the Angolan wrecking machine has his eyes set firmly on championship gold.

Mikixi knows he is in for the toughest fight of his career and has the utmost respect for Potts, but that will not stop him from accomplishing his dreams. Mikixi reckons that both him and Potts will have a stand-up fight planned with a knockout in mind.

“I wish Potts all the best but I will be the new title holder. I have been training every day since this fight has been confirmed and training is going well,” says Mikixi. He has been sporting a blonde beard in his last few fights that can’t be missed.

“I will keep my beard for all my upcoming fights and although I don’t see it as luck, I believe I get blessings from God,” says The Black Panther.
