Johannesburg, South Africa – World Sports Betting have firmly placed EFC Featherweight Champion, Igeu ‘Smiley’ Kabesa as their favourite to successfully defend his belt at EFC 99 on the 3rd of November, but the odds are a lot closer than fight fans and pundits expected. With the incumbent running a 1.63 betting line, Swanepoel is just .62 adrift as an underdog, a fascinating line on a card which has several outstanding parlay opportunities. A particularly good wager is Zambia’s highly-experienced Rob Simbowe coming in as a massive longshot against Durban’s Tapiwa Katikati, at 3.40 you can almost triple your money on the Black Tiger, a similar matchup to JT Botha being a significant favourite over the veteran Kaleka Kabanda. The prelim card is awash with even odds but an intriguing chance is to be had with Katiso Matime a huge dark horse against the debutante David Mambo, ostensibly due to the latter’s impressive amateur career. EFC and World Sports Betting prove yet again that in the sports and gaming industries, we provide punters with the best odds and opportunities to make an exciting evening of the best combat action even more enthralling!
