Yes, it’s on!
Both Tommy Oosthuizen and Thabiso Mchunu have signed for a rematch following their close 12-rounder at Emperors Palace on December 8.
This is a boon for fight fans who clamoured for the rematch in the wake of Oosthuizen’s majority decision win – 115-113 (twice) and 114-114 – that split fans down the middle.
“I’m delighted to have done the deal,” said promoter Rodney Berman. “It was a pleasure dealing with both camps, who were very easy to deal with.”
This now guarantees a high-quality event topped by IBO welterweight champion Thulane Mbenge in defence of his championship. Big-hitting Keaton Gomes will also feature.
