One of the brightest rising stars in South African boxing, Jabulani Makhense, puts his newly won WBA Pan African welterweight title on the line against Kuvesa Katembo from the DRC over ten rounds.
Criticized in the past for being content to go the distance, the 10-0 with five knockouts Makhense turned tiger in his last bout in October when he blasted out the usually durable Erik Kapia inside a round.
Katembo, who has a respectable 13-3-1 record has never been knocked out. In his last bout in October, he lost a ten-round decision to heavy handed Thulani Mbenge.
Will Makhense be able to do what Mbenge could not and be the first man to beat Katembo inside the distance?
