Two South Africa-based Congolese warriors will clash for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Light Heavyweight title on March 27 at the Turffontein Racecourse in Johannesburg.

Up-and-coming Jason Medi, 6-1 (2), takes on battle-tested Jimmy “The Beast” Mabundji, 10-7 (8), who is by far the most accomplished opponent Medi will have faced.

Medi lost his pro debut in July of 2022, a decision to undefeated Asemahle Wellem, but has looked impressive since and is now primed and ready for the most significant fight of his career so far.

Like Medi, Jimmy Mabundji has been based in South Africa since turning pro, and, except for one fight in Zimbabwe, all his bouts have taken place there.

In June of 2017 he won the WBF All Africa Middleweight title with a first round demolition of Dido Mukanya, and now he gets a chance to become a two-time, two-weight WBF champion almost seven years later.

Medi is arguably the fresher of the two, but the experience and toughness of Mabundji will be a tough task for him to overcome.

The fight headlines Breakthrough V, a show promoted by BRD Boxing Promotions.
