Its gonna get Heated!
British and European Champion, Matthew Magic Man Hatton steps out of his back yard to take on South Africa’s IBO Welterweight World Champion , Chris The Heat Van Heerden. Showpony’s Bill at Sandton March 2nd is a combination of big hitters, shrewd boxers, a prospect or two and some big names.
FINAL UNDERCARD FOR MARCH 2ND
Welterweight – Lobanda Batale vs Mthobisi Buthelezi
Heavyweight – Elvis Moyo vs Osborne Machimana
Light Heavyweight – Matty Clarkson vs Tshepang Mohale
Welterweight – Kaiser Mabuza vs Issac Hlatshwayo
Welterweight – Matthew Hatton vs Chris Van Heerden
The matchup between Osborne “Big Daddy” Machimana and Elvis Moyo is largely based on Osborne trying to obtain his SA Heavyweight Title later in the year. Elvis Moyo has lost 10kg’s and is determined to cause an upset.
Tshepang Mohale is back to winning ways and should have his hands full against young UK prospect Mattie Clarkson. Should he get through Clarkson he will defend his SA Title against Charles “Iron Fist” Oosthuizen in June – at light heavyweight.
In what promises to be a cracker for the curtain raiser, Kaiser Mabuza and Issac “The Angel” Hlatshwayo fight in an 8 rounder, which will surely be a make or break in both their careers.
Should Chris beat Matthew Hatton, a bigger name is sure to follow.
