Johannesburg – Tuesday 28 February 2017 – Today SABC Sport, South Africa’s sport broadcasting leader, announces its first live event of  Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) due to take  place at the Carnival City on Sat 04 March 2017.

Scotland's Danny Henry made headlines when he handed Boyd Allen his first ever loss in EFC. Now fate turns in his favour as he steps in, replacing an injured Allen to face the undefeated champion Igeu ‘Smiley’ Kabesa in an epic title fight rematch!

Ahead of the highly anticipated main event, two massive heavyweight bouts will ensue as the Zimbabwean ‘Bomber’ Elvis Moyo clashes with South Africa’s Mike Vermeulen and the undefeated heavyweight prospect, Wessel Mostert collides with England’s KO artist Tony Mustard.  

Also, flying in from the UK by way of Spain; a dangerous man is looking to make his stamp in theorganisation as he goes head-to head with South African MMA legend Martin van Staden and brash South African Gordon  Roodman takes on the silent assassin, Bulgarian Goerge Georgiev in the opening bout of the main card.

SABC Sport will bring 5 of these much anticipated bouts will be live on SABC 3 from 21h00 with updates on SABC Radio stations.
