What can one say about Marios Matamba? Shades of the late Charlie Weir and the great GGG -and what power, what excitement he brings to the ring.
Jabulani Makhense displayed an incredible maturity – totally outboxing the current South African Champion Xolani Mcotheli -bearing in mind that Makhense has only 7 professional fights to his name, what exciting mouth-watering fights weigh ahead in this Division!
