World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Featherweight champion Steven Bagwasi is ready to make his first title-defense on March 3 at the Grand Palm Hotel & Casino in his home-town of Gabarone in Botswana.

Bagwasi, 8-1 (2), won the title last August, when he impressively out-boxed Tanzanian Said Chino for a shut-out unanimous decision and became the first ever boxing world champion from Botswana.

On March 3 he will face a tough challenger in South African national champion Lunga Sitemela, who brings an impressive 15-1 (9) record to the dance.

Sitemela captured the South African title in May of last year, and successfully defended it the following November, stopping very respectable opponents in both outings.

The 31-year-old from Cape Town is undoubtedly a worthy opponent for the WBF world champion, and has a considerable advantage in power and experience.

Televised live by Botswana TV, the Bagwasi vs. Sitemela WBF World Super Featherweight title fight will be promoted by Scud Missile Promotions.
