Exhibition Fight History
What do you do for fight preparation?
I do my fight camp at Junkyard gym. I double all my training for superior performance.
How did you get your fight name?
Shelton was given to me by my Judo coach back home in the Congo. Later on, I found out that Shelton Benjamin is one of the best wrestlers in America. Since then, I am proud to have that as my nickname.
When did you start training martial arts?
When I came to South Africa in 2014, one of my friends told me about MMA . I joined the MMA gym House of Tinkerbell. JP Kruger has my respect as a coach. In 2017, I decided to move to Durban and joined Super Warriors gym. They helped me get into amateur fighting. After 3 fights, I moved back to Gauteng and started my own gym with a friend of mine, Siyabonga. I now thank EFC for welcoming me into their organization.
How did you transition to MMA?
My father introduced me to taekwondo. I had a purple belt after 11 years’ experience and then a Judo green belt. When I came to South Africa and got introduced to MMA, I started immediately and I haven’t done anything else since.
