Campbell faces tough test against Kabangu

An exciting line-up has been announced for the February 24 tournament, to be held at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Sunday afternoon.

In another interesting matchup, Xolani Mcotheli (17-4; 12), who holds the South African and WBF Intercontinental junior-welterweight titles, meets the rugged Jabulano Makhense (6-0; 4) from Pretoria in a clash for the vacant WBA Pan African junior-welterweight title.

In the third championship bout on the bill, the hard-hitting Marios Matamba (9-0; 7) from Cape Town via Brazzaville, Congo, faces Johannesburg-based Clement Kamanga (11-3; 5) of the DRC over ten rounds for the vacant IBF Africa junior-welterweight title.

Other bouts on this action-packed bill are Junior-bantamweight: six rounds, Ricardo Malijica v Andile Cindi; Middleweight: six rounds, Dowayne Combrink v Karabo Mokupi; Junior-middleweight: four rounds, Tristan Truter v Simphiwe Ntombele.

All the records are taken from Boxrec and the boxing starts at 1pm

In a first for South Africa there will three Youth World Title fights on one card at the tournament to be held on May 12 at Emperors Palace, involving Keaton Gomes (cruiserweight), Rourke Knapp (junior-middleweight), and Ricardo Malijika (junior-bantamweight).
