After a meteoric recovery from the worldwide shut down of sports the landmark EFC 90 event sees the continued resurgence of the organisation into the new post pandemic era and into the new thriving digital world.
Driving ahead with the backing of a massive television broadcast reach and a broadcast explosion across digital platforms, the future of EFC and Africa’s greatest warriors has never been brighter.
And the light for all ahead is shown no more clearly than In the vacant 135 pound bantamweight division where a space has been made for the rise of two new contenders, and one new champion.
The number one contender, Sindile ’The Ghost’ Manengela dismantled all opponents in his path and earned his place and his shot at the top.
But the champion took a new opportunity, chose not to defend and relinquished his title, leaving the thrown open for an imminent battle between two prospective kings to take place.
The former champion, Faeez ‘troublemaker’ Jacobs accepted the challenge to reclaim what he once beheld, taking the chance to fight a rising rival and face his ghosts of his past.
