Botha To Battle W. Hawkey

Top featherweight showdown, July 03

Johannesburg (South Africa) – Multiple South African wrestling champion Hanru Botha gets his chance when he faces former title contender Wesley Hawkey in a top of the featherweight division clash on July 03.

Botha has put in sensational performances to earn this top division bout. Most recently he bested another former title contender Alain Ilunga over three rounds, and before that scored an unforgettable knock out of the night win over Kanyeba Anicet.

He is now riding a three fight win streak, and should he beat Hawkey, will find himself in a strong position to challenge for the title.

                                                                 Wesley Hawkey in action.

Wesley Hawkey is a perennial top contender. Coming off of a textbook striking based win over Gareth Buirski, he is currently in the form that made him a legend, and perhaps more dangerous than ever.

Should Hawkey put a stop to Botha’s winning run he will find himself back in the division’s upper reaches, and that much closer to a rematch with current number one contender Boyd Allen.
