VAN DER MERWE VS KIM CANCELLED

Johannesburg, South Africa – Just hours out from the official EFC 51 weigh-in, EFC medical team deemed DuHo Kim unable to compete at EFC 51. Kim is suffering from a lung infection and thus the team decided it would not be safe for him to compete.

The fight has been cancelled.

Both van der Merwe and Kim will be paid their fight purses.

"We never want to cancel a fight, but safety is our first priority,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. He continued, “We have such stringent medical checks and this is what they are here to do."

EFC 51: Mynhardt vs Mazany, presented by SUPABETS, takes place on Friday 15 July at Carnival City, Johannesburg. Tickets available at www.computicket.com, all the main card bouts will be broadcast live on www.kwesesports.com starting 20:00 (CAT) and delayed live on e.tv after the 20:30 (CAT) movie.
