Fight changes ahead of this Saturday’s EFC 87
Johannesburg, South Africa – As the exhilaration of fight night dawns for fans, so does the pressure of the fight weigh down on the fighters. Among some of the strictest COVID restrictions South Africa and the world of sports has seen, EFC 87 is set to go ahead this Saturday 3 July live from the EFC Performance Institute in JHB, South Africa and although COVID restrictions have not put a stop to the show, family commitments and pressure surrounding the pandemic have forced Fafa Dwama, one of the main card athletes to pull off the card.
Dwama, who was set to face Wayde Kerspuy, contacted EFC management recently citing personal reasons for needing to withdraw from his bout. His opponent, Wade Kerspuy was offered a new challenge however elected to decline the offer. Both top prospects are expected to return to the hexagon soon.
The bout is replaced by Mozambique’s Orlando Mashava taking on a newcomer to EFC, Kenya’s Javan Buyu.
EFC 87 Michael vs Bagattin, presented by Restonic, takes place on Saturday 3 July 2021 live from the EFC Performance Institute in JHB, South Africa (no spectators due to COVID-19 government restrictions).
