Van Zyl dominated over five rounds to take Potts’ title. At EFC AFRICA 26 their titanic struggle finally plays comes to a head. On December 12 its best out of three.
Adam The Prodigy Speechly clashes with the Nigerian born Irishman, Henry Herculeez Fadipe, in a welterweight bout certain to reveal a new contender for the title. Speechly, a former champion, is often described as the best pound for pound athlete in the organisation. Fadipe offers a serious challenge, however. After two performances the Irishman has displayed massive talent. Against Speechly hell be making use of his full arsenal.
Matthew Buirski makes his third outing at bantamweight against the veteran, former title contender Abdul Hassan. Hassan has previously only fought at featherweight and makes the cut to bantamweight for the first time. Hell be bringing a truckload of power to the bout, something the equally powerful Buirski will welcome.
Controversial all-round phenomenon Liam Cleland returns to the Hexagon after nearly a years absence. In his way stands Jason Culverwell, Richards Bays golden boy. Culverwell burst onto the EFC AFRICA stage with two massive performances, but lost form in his next two outings. At 2-2 he is primed to deliver on the superstar form he initially showed.
The DRCs Alain Commander Boy Ilunga goes up against Durbans Peter Kratos Nyide, an exceptionally tough athlete. He will need all of his grit to face Ilungas legendary kicks, blows that have resulted in TKOs twice before.
