Durban, South Africa – EFC 70 in Durban just got a whole lot fiercer. Nigerian born Dr. Bunmi Ojewole is confirmed to take-on South Africa’s ‘Demolition’ Jacqualine Trosee in the co-main event. They join the fight card headlined by the women’s bantamweight championship, live from Sibaya Casino on 26 May 2018.
Ojewole is as natural an athlete as they come. The pure love for competition can always be seen on her face and it is clearly where she is happiest. The orthopedic surgeon is a dichotomy in the world of combat sports. In one part of her life, she breaks bones, in the other she mends them.
Fighting out of Lion’s Den, Durban, she recently came second at the Abu Dhabi BJJ World Pro. Confidences are running high and she will be on the hunt for another dominant performance in the EFC Hexagon, in front of her home town.
In contrast, is her opponent, Trosee. A South African Muay Thai champion, she is deadly on her feet with her strikes. A woman made of true grit, a never say die attitude; she comes to brawl.
The Pretoria based combatant fights out of Warriors Sports, but is no stranger to the Durban arena. She contested for the flyweight championship against Lino, but has since moved up a division, to take advantage of her power and mitigate intense weight cuts.
EFC 70 Lino vs Zouak is presented by Betxchange.com and takes place on Saturday 26 May live from Sibaya, Durban.
