Major Title Fight Kicks Off EFC’s Return To 2017

EFC 57

Scotland’s Danny Henry made headlines when he handed Boyd Allen his first ever loss in EFC. Now fate turns in his favour as he steps in to replace an injured Allen and steps in to face Igeu ‘Smiley’ Kabesa. Standing in on late notice, he not only gets the chance to seek vengeance against his defeat to Kabesa, but also has the opportunity to claim EFC gold in the process. This sets up potentially the biggest rematch in recent memory, between the undefeated champion, Kabesa, and the former champion, Scotsman Henry.

Ahead of the historic title fight, two massive heavyweight bouts will ensue as the Zimbabwean ‘Bomber’ Elvis Moyo clashes with South Africa’s Mike Vermeulan and the undefeated heavyweight prospect, Wessel Mostert collides with England’s KO artist Tony Mustard.

But first witness the exciting bouts featuring Lyle Karam vs Themba Gorimbo, Pope Djembo vs Tayla Kennedy, Devon Cronje vs Youssef Hassan and Ruben Groenewald vs Simon Harle.
