Johannesburg (South Africa) - This Thursday’s prelim card is packed with major fights.
Fan favourite Donnavan Wilken returns after a devastating loss, fired up to reclaim his spot in the upper reaches of the bantamweight division.
New kids and amateur legends Mark Hulme and Keron Davies make their Hexagon debuts. Hulme has been vocal about smashing his opponent and veteran Josh Muller into oblivion, ‘The Jedi’ has simply posted jokes in reply.
Chaz Wasserman makes his highly anticipated debut but Themba Gorimbo, the man looking for his third straight EFC AFRICA victory, stands in his way.
Cedric Doyle and Boney Bukaka go head to head. Bukaka dropped Lourens Botes, out cold, with a knee to the head, on debut. Doyle is on a brutal tear with two first round finishes in his wake.
Francois Groenewald, the ground master and top bantamweight contender, goes up against the African and Commonwealth champion wrestler with a proven sledgehammer of a right hand; Pierre Botha.
Alex ‘The Professor’ Cheboub and David van Schalkwyk go head to head.
The legends Gareth Buirski and Wesley Hawkey finally battle it out. For both men victory is a necessity, and both have the speed, skill and intensity to obliterate the other.
EFC AFRICA 27’s prelim is one for the history books.
