Nxoshe to make mandatory defence

South African flyweight champion Thembelani Nxoshe makes the second defence of his title when he faces mandatory challenger Nhlanhla Ngamntwini at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon.

Nxoshe 19-7-1; 6, from Mdantsane, won the vacant flyweight title in September 2016 when he beat Mfundo Gwayana.

He made a successful defence against Xolisile Voyi and in his most recent fight in December last year he was beaten on points by Ngamntwini in a non-title fight.

Ngamtwini 14-1; 9, from Duncan Village, has been fighting as a pro since June 2012 and his only defeat came against Simphiwe Khonco in December 2014 when he was knocked out in the fourth round.


On the same card Bongani Silila 15-5-3; 11 defends his South African junior-flyweight title against Luyanda Nkwanka 9-13-2; 5 in a rematch.

Their first fight ended in a draw.

Former South African mini-flyweight champion Siphamandla Baleni will also be action against Loyiso Ngantweni.
