FIGHT ANNOUNCEMENT: FAEEZ JACOBS VS NERICK SIMOES

Cape Town, South Africa - Cape Town’s outspoken rising star, Faeez ‘Troublemaker’ Jacobs, looks to go 3-0 in EFC when he takes on the undefeated Angolan Nerik Simoes on September 9.

Jacobs hails from Cape Town and trains out of little known gym, Fighterz Inc. He and his team were hoisted into the spotlight at EFC 61 when his fight against Kevin Pheko was moved to the main card. There Jacobs thrived, recording a blistering TKO finish, and is now hungry to make it three fights, and three finishes.

Simoes trains out of Pretoria based gym Team CIT, alongside such champions as Dricus du Plessis and fellow countryman Marino Cutendana. A tough all-rounder, Simoes impressed in his recent debut at EFC 59 with a first-round submission.

The two athletes will meet at a catchweight of 64 kilograms.

This fight takes place on the five-fight main card main card at EFC Cape Town: Contenders Rising.

EFC 63: Cape Town is presented by www.BetXchange.com and takes place on Saturday 9 September live from GrandWest, CPT. Tickets are on sale at www.computicket.com, and the 5 main card bouts will be broadcast live on kwesesports.com (Sub-Saharan Africa), Kwesé Free Sports 1 (Kenya & Rwanda) and live in South Africa on SABC 3 starting at 21:00 (CAT).
