(June 9, 2021) – South African Sanele Magwaza will make his first defense of the World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Bantamweight title against compatriot Luzuku Siyo on Sunday June 27 at the Nangoze Jebe Hall in his home-town Port Elizabeth.
Magwaza, 5-1 (2), won the WBF title in November of 2019 with a split decision over Anathi Stelle, and is now ready to headline again in what could easily be another difficult and action-packed fight.
Siyo, from nearby Duncan Village, has a clear edge in experience with a 17-5 record, and is a former South African and IBO Intercontinental titlist. With fourteen of his wins coming inside the distance, he is likely the more powerful of the too as well.
With that said, the reigning champion will be hell-bend to hold on to his title, while the veteran puncher should be highly motivated, knowing that this is a great opportunity for him to take his career to another level again.
The Magwaza vs. Siyo WBF All Africa Bantamweight title fight will be promoted by Nyusa Boxing Promotions, in cooperation with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.
