No Damns Given
Madge on June 05’s super fight
23 May 2014
Johannesburg (South Africa) - On June 05 the giants of two different weight divisions clash when Cape Town’s Don Madge welcomes the featherweight number one contender Boyd Allen to the lightweight arena for a catchweight bout.
Fans have dubbed this meeting a ‘superfight’ – Allen being undefeated in the EFC AFRICA Hexagon, and posing an incredible threat to the inspired talent of Madge.
Neil Rooke of themmacorner.com chatted with Madge ahead of this once in a lifetime showdown. Selections of the full article reprinted below:
“This will be my third main event for EFC. I love the high-pressure fights, I feel like it makes me perform better. It’s always an honour to be considered for the main event.”
Madge’s new opponent, Allen, is undefeated inside the EFC Africa cage, but sports two losses on his overall record. The last of those losses came in 2011, and Madge has the opportunity to deal Allen his first professional loss in over three years. One could say Allen has forgotten how it feels to lose.
“I think he’s about to see what that’s like,” Madge exclaimed. “I always look to finish fights. I know I have the ability to stop anyone on the feet or the ground. I’m always looking to stop my opponents. [Fans] can expect what I always bring—fire, aggression, excitement and no damns given. Don’t expect a long fight.”
