MUKULU HAS WORDS FOR DU PLESSIS
Promises he is an evolved athlete and will surprise
02 December 2015
Johannesburg, South Africa – When DRC's Bruno 'The Major' Mukulu made his EFC debut, he faced a very young and tenacious Dricus 'Stillnkocks' du Plessis. While he lost that initial meeting, he was not disheartened. When the rematch was offered to him at the final event of the year, he eagerly jumped at the opportunity to prove to the world that he is an evolved athlete and has surpassed Pretoria's du Plessis.
Late last night, du Plessis posted on Instagram a photo from their first meeting with the caption: "A little reminder to Bruno Mukulu of what happened last time. Nothing will change."
Mukulu was very quick to respond on the post stating, "I know what makes u say that, it's because you know that you are fighting someone very different from whom you fought at EFC 23. I can't wait for 12 December. Did you just see that speed in my last fight? Did you see the power? Get ready, you will be surprised anyway."
Tensions are heating up as fight night approaches and both athletes have a lot on the line, Mukulu in search of redemption, Du Plessis on the hunt for the number one contender spot and the right to challenge the welterweight champion.
EFC 46: Buirski vs. van Staden, presented by BetXchange.com, and takes place at Carnival City, Johannesburg, on Saturday 12 December 2015. Tickets available at www.computicket.com.
