Zamibia’s Black Tiger to face South Africa’s Mighty Warrior at EFC 99

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – After the announcement that Igeu ‘Smiley’ Kabesa will defend his Featherweight Title against Bradley ‘The Nightmare’ Swanepoel on 3rd of November, the EFC 99 card continues to form into a must-see event for fight fans around the world with a captivating lightweight addition to the main card of Rob Simbowe versus Tapiwa Katikati. A seven-fight mainstay of the EFC, Simbowe is the pride of Lusaka with all of his victories inside the Hexagon being spectacular first-round finishes over top opponents including a knockout of Anicet Kanyeba and two stunning heel hooks of both Stefan Pretorius and Given Majuba. But Durban’s Katikati has equally thrilled fans with an undefeated record with all of his fights yet to go the distance due to a heady mixture of knock-outs and submissions. With his teammate Bradley Swanepoel fighting for gold in the main event, Katikati will hope to make it a clean sweep for the Combat Coaching team in Amanzimtoti, whilst Simbowe will hope that a decisive victory will eventually put him in line for a shot at the 155lb belt in a crowded and competitive division and eventually become the first Zambian champion of Africa.
