Port Alfred has managed a huge boxing coup with the WBF (World Boxing Federation) vacant Africa mini-flyweight (or strawweight) title fight scheduled to take place at the Titi Jonas Community Centre on Saturday October 5.
Originally scheduled for Spring Day (September 1), the fight was postponed until October due to an injury to Ndikho ‘Destroyer’ Magadaza’s hand, which has taken a month to heal. According to his trainer, Mbelelo Veto, Magadaza has recovered and began training in earnest over the last few weeks in order to prepare himself for this important World Boxing Federation (WBF) title fight for the mini Flyweight belt.
“He is looking good and will be in top form by the time of the fight. There will be no excuses,” said Veto who added that his boxer was ready to take on the world. Veto has been responsible for securing boxing promotions in the area and also has trained some of the area’s most prominent boxers.
