FIGHT ANOUNCEMENT: DEON BRUNING VS SIZWE MNIKATHI
Beautiful fight added to EFC Cape Town prelim card
24 August 2017
Cape Town, South Africa - The beautiful prospect of Deon Brunning vs Sizwe Mnikathi has been added to the already stacked EFC 63 prelim card, taking place at GrandWest Casino, Cape Town, on September 9.
Deon Bruning is a Cape Town native who learned his fighting craft in the United Kingdom. After 10 years of living and fighting there, in which he earned his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and went 2-0 as an MMA professional, he is back home.
Now training out of Pride Fighting Academy in the city centre, he has already impressed fans with a clinical win against the talented Regis Muyambo. Brunning enters this fight with his flawless record on the line.
Sizwe Mnikathi is a name that is feared among EFC athletes. Known for the ability to endure any attack with a wry smile, he is a go-forward athlete with deceptively heavy hands, surprisingly quick footwork, and a love of fighting hard.
Training out of Durban’s famed Lion’s Den gym, his experienced hand at 5-7 combined with his brutal, take-no-prisoners style promises to test the clinical Capetonian to the limit.
This fight takes place on the prelim card ahead of the five-fight main card at EFC Cape Town.
