THE time has arrived for the third chapter of “War on the Shore” encounters at the Wild Coast Sun, Port Edward on Friday 15 April.

The event is made possible by Kalakoda Productions in association with Sun International’s Wild Coast Sun and Damascus Fitness Equipment.

Top rated Durban boxer, Lee Dyer, shall lead the pack when he takes on DRC’s Erick “Master Blaster” Kazadi in a six round Super Middleweight bout.

Dyer has been relatively inactive the past few years, however, he came back strongly recently with a knock-out victory at a tournament in Johannesburg.

Dyer will go for broke against the skilful Kazadi with a pro record of five wins and one defeat and one draw.

SA Title challenger, the reigning champion, Balemo Weliya, whom hasn’t defended his title for a long time is well advised to start focussing on this fight as both Dyer and Malinga aren’t going to let him dominate.

In the main supporting bout of the evening Ruann “The Giant King” Visser, now with a pro record of six wins and one defeat, will take on former DRC Amateur and pro Heavyweight champion Paul “Tonton” Mukela.

In Mukela’s words: “I have no conscious. Visser will be nothing more than a miniature dwarf when I’m done with him.”

Visser on the other hand just laughed it off.

Devan Beckman (former SA Junior heavyweight title challenger) travels to Cape Town for sessions with former unbeaten All Africa champion and Jan “the Giant” Nortje.

Marcel Botha fighting out of Ballito, will have his second appearances at War on the Shore, this time taking on the relatively unknown, Trinity Mhlongo from Manden.

Botha, in his last encounter at the Wild Coast in January, fought in one of the most exciting Middleweight bouts that has taken place in a long time in South Africa when he and Ayanda Mthembu fought nothing less than an absolute brawl.

Former SA Amateur champion, Siphozakhwe Kunene, sent Kunene a few times to the canvass and really fought a tremendous bout. So he definitely isn’t travelling all the way to Port Edward to loose.

Brandon Naudé had a tough bout late last year against the unbeaten Nkosinathi Biyela.

Former SA junior Lightweight title challenger, David Rajuli is also out to redeem himself . In his last bout he lost to the reigning SA Champion, Jasper Seroka on a seventh TKO.

Rajuli is known for his classic boxing style and yes the man can pack a decent punch.

He meets one of the most experienced junior lightweights in the country commonly known as “ The Professor” as he claims he takes all his opponents to school.

Expect non-stop action from Rajuli and The Professor. Unbeaten junior heavyweights, Herman­ Potgieter, meets unbeaten Congolese boxer, Falay Kubeya. Potgieter is unbeaten in six outings while Kubeya is unbeaten in five, so there will be no love lost between these two boxers as neither wishes to see their unbeaten run being blemished by a defeat.

Former SA amateur star, Durban based, Mfundisi Ngema, is set to have his second pro outing when he meets Lindokuhle Mhlongo from Mandeni in a four-round bantamweight bout. There’s lots of talk around Ngema expecting him to take on the toughest in the division soon.

Expect some furious action from Cape Town’s Nicholas Radley and Uitenhage’s Juan Vosloo in a four-round scheduled light heavyweight bout. Radley, with huge support in Cape Town, recently stopped Prince Nkwaunuka in the first round is an all action fighter .

The tournament takes place, Friday the 15 April at the Wild Coast Sun, Port Edward as from 7pm.

Corporate tables at R500 per person or table of 10 for R5 000. Other entrance tickets at R50 per person. Contact Petra Bainbridge 039 305 4501 e-mail petra.bainbridge@suninternational.com
