Magwaca vs. Komani on August 26th

One of the youngest and most promising promoters in Cape Town, Charles Mijikela of Amandla Boxing Promotions, has put together an exciting card for his show in Lwandle Township in Strand, Cape Town on 26 August.

The main fight on this six fight card will showcase one of the top up and coming fighters in Cape Town, Mzuvukile Magwaca going for the World Boxing Federation All-Africa Light Flyweight title against Countryman Dalisiswe Komani.

Still only nineteen years old, Magwaca has put together an excellent and un-flawed record of 9-0 with five KOs, but will be severely tested by Komani, the number 6 rated junior flyweight in South Africa.

Komani is a come forward and aggressive fighter who boasts a record of 12 fights with eight wins and five knockouts. The highly talented Magwaca will need to show all his silky skills if he intends capturing the WBF title and extend his unbeaten record into double figures.
