MUKULU VS. PRETORIUS HEADLINE EFC 48 PRELIMS
DRC’s Bruno ‘The Major’ Mukulu takes-on RSA’s Stefan Pretorius at EFC Cape Town, Friday 22 April
12 April 2016
Cape Town, South Africa – The full EFC Cape Town fight card was revealed late last week, along with the headlining prelim bout. While Brendon Groenewald and Danie ‘The Pitbull’ van Heerden and Irshaad ‘White Tiger’ Sayed faces Cedric ‘The Dominator’ Doyle vie for the heavyweight and bantamweight titles respectively, earlier on the card sees DRC’s Bruno ‘The Major’ Mukulu set to face South Africa’s Stefan “Mr. Kicks” Pretorius.
Hailing from Springs, Johannesburg, Pretorius had a rocky beginning to his professional career losing his first fight at lightweight, but has since won back-to-back victories since moving to the heavier welterweight division. Pretorius has managed to finish both of his previous opponents, one via TKO and the other via a triangle submission. With a big step up in competition with his upcoming opponent, Pretorius is looking to show he is a true threat in the super stacked welterweight division.
Having in the past stepped up on late notice to face Dricus du Plessis and having taking England’s Joe Cummins the distance in a memorable ‘Fight of the Night’ performance, Mukulu has built a reputation in EFC as an incredibly tough and challenging fight for everyone he has faced. Mukulu has shown he is capable of facing the best in the division but will he know how to handle the young up-and-coming Pretorius, the man eager to slingshot himself up the rankings?
This bout headlines the EFC 48 prelim card taking place ahead of the double title fight featuring Groenewald vs. van Heerden and Sayed vs. Doyle and so much more.
