Mchunu – Dos Santos Fight Cancelled After Event Postponed by Promoter

Real Steel Promotions Postponed Tournament which was Scheduled to Feature Cruiserweight Battle Between Thabiso “The Rock” Mchunu and Julio “Gaspar” Cesar Dos Santos

Pretoria, South Africa: Real Steel Promotions’ Electric Storm Tournament scheduled to take place tomorrow Pretoria, South Africa has been postponed. Cruiserweight Thabiso Mchunu was scheduled to participate in a ten-round undercard bout against Brazilian Julio Cesar Dos Santos, which has been postponed along with the rest of the show. According to a notice posted on Real Steel’s website the show was postponed “[d]ue to logistical reasons and circumstances beyond our control.”

According to Thabiso’s co-promoter Damian Michael of Show Pony Promotions, “It is not an ideal situation when something like this happens at the last minute but unfortunately that is the nature of the boxing business in a third world country. Now we are going to focus on returning to the United States to fight and winning a world title.”

“We are so sorry to hear that this event will not take place as planned. I cannot imagine how upset Thabiso and Damian must be.” said Kathy Duva of Main Events, Mchunu’s co-promoter. “We are working with Damian to find another fight for Thabiso and will continue with our plans to bring Mchunu back to the US later this year.”
