Former South African Super flyweight champion Lwandile Sityatha is out to prove he is one of the best in the world, when he fight up and coming superstar and current S.A. champion Siphosethu Mvula for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Flyweight title on Saturday night (May 31) in East London, South Africa.
Sityatha boasts a professional record of 15-3-1 (7), while Mvula brings an undefeated ledger of 7-0 (6), having taken apart former S.A. champion Unathi Gqukoma in convincing fashion to win the crown. They will clash on a Ayanda Matiti Xaba Promotions bill.
Sityatha, one of the most talented fighters in South Africa, issued a stern warning to the South African champion:
”You are now to fight a true champion and you will see what boxing is all about. You are young and talented, but you haven’t faced me in the ring yet and I am going to school you.”
Mvula replied: ”talk is cheap, meet me in the ring and let’s do the business.”
South Africa is well known for huge talent in the lower weight divisions, and Sityatha and Mvula are exactly that. Its a fifty fifty fight but one thing is for sure – its going to be a war in East London on Saturday night.
