Johannesburg, South Africa – Two weeks ago it was announced that the headlining fight for the vacant EFC middleweight title at the upcoming EFC 49 will see South African favouite JP ‘Tinkerbell’ Kruger face England’s behemoth Yannick ‘Black Mamba’ Bahati. Along with this announcement, it was mentioned that the remaining EFC 49 main card fights would be revealed soon.
Zimbabwe’s Themba ‘The Answer’ Gorimbo had a meteoric rise, going undefeated in six fights and then challenging lightweight champion Leon Mynhardt and suffering his first ever professional loss. Gorimbo is a big lightweight and has already shown early in his career that he is highly competitive in the heavier welterweight division. Now set to face England’s undefeated Joe ‘Silk’ Cummins, the former contender has everything to gain. Cummins is riding back-to-back victories in the EFC hexagon, having earned ‘Fight of the Night’ in his most recent outing. With his eye firmly set on becoming the champion, beating Gorimbo will be a massive push in the right direction for the British talent.
All this and so much more scheduled to take place at EFC 49. Prelim bouts to be announced soon.
