Historically Cape Town, South Africa has been known in boxing for developing some outstanding talents over the years. One thinks of Happyboy Mgxagi, Sidney Hoho, Bashew Sibaca, Gary Murray, Nika Khumalo and Mzonke Fana to mention but a few of the stars who have emerged out of Cape Town.

Often talented fighters in this region are not afforded the opportunity to showcase their skills. On 23 June at the famous MewWay Centre in Khaylelisha, former Congolese fighter and now turned promoter, Commando Kalekuzi is providing two exciting young fighters with the opportunity of fighting for the WBF All-African lightweight title.

Vusumzi Tyatyeka is now being trained by top Cape Town trainer Zola Koti, the former trainer of Boxrec # 1 Mzonke Fana, and believes that Tyatyeka has great potential to reach the top. He is rated number 3 in South Africa and has accumulated a record of 12-2 with 10 KOs. His only two losses have both been to Patrick Malinga, the current South African champion and both were in title fights.

Thanduxolo Dyani is rated number five in South Africa in the junior lightweight division, and has also built up an impressive record of 11-1 with 6 KOs. His only loss was to current South African champion and former world title contender Godfrey Nzimande.

This promises to be a thriller which will catapult the winner on to a much bigger stage in the future. It also signifies the return of championship boxing to Cape Town, with a mega event to follow at the end of August.
