The hype is cranking up ahead of “Southpaw Showdown” later this month with confirmation of two open days coming up.
On Thursday, Colin Nathan’s gym will host an open workout featuring Chris van Heerden, Hekkie Budler and DeeJay Kriel, starting at 12 noon. Dangerous Dane Micki Nielsen, who has been in the country for over a week, will also be attending.
This is typically held in a relaxed environment where the boxers go through their paces in full view of the media and public, after which they happily talk about their prospects for the action at Emperors Palace.
The action then moves to the Smith gym the following Tuesday (October 11, 12 noon) where Kevin Lerena will be showing his wares ahead of his career-defining fight against Nielsen.
