Pretoria, South Africa – Another exhilarating match-up has been added to the final EFC event of 2018 taking place at Time Square, Menlyn Main, Pretoria on Saturday 8 December. Young rising star, Luke Michael, is set to take-on the brutal Conrad Seabi with a potential No.1 contender spot hanging in the balance.
Michael is in the middle of a career resurgence. Having made the move from Cape Town to Johannesburg to join Coach Quan University in Bryanston, he is now riding a two-fight winning streak with two first-round finishes.
He was originally booked to fight Joe Cummins in Cape Town at EFC 75, but withdrew from the bout with an injury. With the appropriate amount of time off, he will be ready to go for the biggest fight of his career yet in December.
An exceptional grappler, all his fights have been won with an early finish. He has never heard the final bell. A feat he will continue to strive for as he chases his shot at EFC gold.
Seabi is fresh off a TKO victory over Germany’s Max Merten at EFC 74, a fight of the night victory against Pietie Coxen and taking interim welterweight champion, Gunther Kalunda the distance. He has been super active and only wants to face the best of competition that will lead him towards a title fight.
The man from Mamelodi, Pretoria is a terrifying opponent to face. Never a step backwards, he is relentless with his boxing and pressure. He sees the man standing opposite him in the Hexagon as an enemy at the gates. An enemy that must be knocked-out, with no questions asked.
Based out of Fight Sports Centre in Norwood, Seabi is a Pretoria man to the core and with his hometown behind him, he will be nearly unstoppable.
“Both these guys are on absolute tears at the moment racking up the wins,” stated EFC VP of Talent Graeme Cartmell. “Either of them could win it and see themselves in a title fight against the interim champ Kalunda next year!”
Two men, hungry to rise to the next level will clash with a potential No.1 contendership hanging in the balance on what will be an epic 12-bout fight card.
