Tough WBF World Title-Defense For Bagwazi

(May 30, 2023) – World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Featherweight champion Steven Bagwazi will likely get his hands full on June 9 in Gaborone, Botswana.

Bagwazi, 8-1 (2), takes on South African champion Lunga Sitemela, 15-1 (9), in what will be his first title-defense.

Winning the WBF world title last August with a dominating unanimous decision over Tanzanian Said Chino, Bagwazi made history by becoming the first boxing world champion from Botswana.

Sitemela is, at least on paper, by far the best opponent so far in his career, as the man from Cape Town has faced, and defeated, stellar opposition since turning pro in 2016.

The South Africans sole loss came on points in 2021 in Russia against undefeated Muhammadkhuja Yaqubov (16-0), and he has since rebounded with two impressive stoppage wins last year.

The Bagwazi vs. Sitemela WBF world Super Featherweight title fight is the main event of a show promoted by Scud Missile Promotions.
