Even though it was the movie premiere viewing, the event wasn’t amiss any smack-talk from the number one welterweight contender Martin ‘The Punisher’ van Staden who had a few words in regard to his soon to be opponent David Buirski, “Amped to watch Southpaw tonight. Pity David Buirski isn’t here like the little B&%$£ he is.”

Preceding these, Pretoria’s Wade ‘The Sadist’ Sage makes his return to the Hexagon for the first time since his debut in Cape Town. He will go head-to-head with Springs standout Stefan Pretorius. Neither athlete was successful in their debut bouts, and put their losses down to the ‘debutants curse’. Now accustomed to the big show, both men are going to come out guns blazing and determined to get their first win in the EFC Hexagon.
After the watching the powerful movie with centered on a boxing champion and his family and struggles, EFC featherweight champion Boyd Allen commented on the movie, “Southpaw was awesome! It’s got me extra excited to defend the belt on the 3rd October against Danny Henry.”
