Cape Town, South Africa - It is confirmed that the heavyweight champion, Andrew van Zyl will take on the division’s biggest threat yet, the undefeated Wessel Mostert. The challenger has put away every fighter he has ever faced, but whether he has what it takes to dethrone the iron-jaw of the three-time heavyweight champion is what remains to be seen.

“We are really looking forward to this,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. He continued, “Mostert is a legitimate challenger, he’s never been stopped and he has a huge chance of beating the champ. This is the perfect fight to headline the Sun City event in the Superbowl.”

Mostert, Rustenburg’s rising star is not only a massive threat to Van Zyl, but he might just enter the bout, as the local favourite. Sun City is in his home province and crowds will be in full support of the challenger, but the ‘Wess Express’ faces his absolute toughest challenge in his quest for EFC gold.

Van Zyl is not just a three-time champion, but renowned for his grappling skills and iron-jaw, and except for the challenger, the heavyweight champion has withstood and overcome the biggest hits from each and every one of the organisation’s best.
