Fab February fight card taking shape

Michael Markram in crunch fight against Frank Rodrigues.

It may be three months away, but Golden Gloves has already pencilled in several mouth-watering bouts for their first event of 2019, set for Emperors palace on February 24.

Boyd Allen must get through his next fight on December 8, after which a crack at the WBA Pan-Africa belt is likely for the exciting junior-middleweight come February.

He’ll be sharing a stage with SA super-middleweight champion Rowan Campbell, who will be making his first title defence.

Yet even these fights could be over-shadowed by a potential barn-burner with crowd-pleasing light-heavyweights Frank Rodrigues and Michael Markram set for a showdown. Rodrigues (5-1, 4 KOs) holds a win over Khayeni Hlungwane and will relish the opportunity to test himself against a smooth operator like Markram.

Markram (3-1, 2 KOs) looked good in his last fight, stopping Mandla Mpofu, but he faces a far tougher time against Rodrigues.
