‘“Well, it means nothing, hey,” Kabesa stated. “I also train with three of Africa’s titleholders, and I myself have been competing since I was eight. Trust me, I’m used to this — is he?”

It’s a very real possibility that Kabesa could add a sixth professional victory and remain undefeated, but he’ll have to dispatch of his most formidable opponent to date. Queally boasts a great deal of worldwide experience, but Kabesa will enter the Hex with his country behind him. The surging lightweight would like nothing more than to win in front of a hometown crowd.’
