Johannesburg, South Africa – This past Saturday saw the ultimate dream match-up between lightweight champion Leon ‘Iron Lion’ Mynhardt and former featherweight champion Boyd Allen. In the second round, Mynhardt’s nose was broken by one of Allen’s sharp punches.
Announced last year, EFC partnered with Constantia Insurance in a landmark deal that sees athletes provided with medical insurance, at no cost to them, and financial assistance towards treating injuries sustained whilst competing at EFC events. Mynhardt’s broken nose will be treated and paid for by Constantia Insurance.
“Thank you Constantia Insurance for delivering on your promise,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. He concluded, “Heal up quick champ, we can’t wait to see you back in action in the Hexagon.”
