Johannesburg (South Africa) – EFC AFRICA 14 presents the EFC debuts of two very respected welterweight warriors. Kelvin ‘Mr Humble’ Mwale, gym manager at World of Warriors on Johannesburg’s East Rand will face David Buirski, an undefeated Shido Fighting Systems’ prospect from Pretoria.
Both were undefeated as amateurs but Buirski has managed to win his two pro fights so far, while Mwale is hungry for redemption after suffering a loss in his last bout.
“EFC AFRICA is the biggest MMA organisation on the continent and I’ve dreamt of fighting here since I started MMA,” says Mwale. “Now that I’m finally getting a chance to compete I’m so happy I’m almost speechless! I don’t know much about my opponent but I’m going to win because I want victory more. I train hard and there is no way he’ll have better stand-up or better ground than me.”
According to Buirski, Mwale’s obvious physical strength doesn’t bother him as he’ll have speed on his side. “Joining EFC is a big step for my career and I won’t disappoint,” says Buirski, brother to EFC AFRICA featherweight Gareth Buirski. “I’ve seen Kelvin fight before, he’s a big boy with good striking but he’s a bit slow. I believe I’m more well-rounded and I’ll simply be too fast and too fit for him.”
EFC AFRICA 14 takes place at the Carnival City Big Top Arena on 1 June. Tickets on sale at Computicket www.Computicket.com and tickets for the live broadcast to Nu Metro Cinemas available at www.Numetro.co.za
