The first bout of Fox Sports Africa Boxing 9 sees South African debutant Tankiso ‘The Eagle’ Qelo take on Botswana’s Kagiso Bagwasi in a four-round International Welterweight Contest at Meropa Casino & Entertainment World in Polokwane on Friday, September 21.
Both fighters weighed-in under the required limit of 66.68kgs on Thursday, September 20.
Qelo is making his professional debut and will look to make a big impression in front of the Limpopo faithful.
Bagwasi is currently ranked 1362 in the Welterweight division and has had just one career fight: that was a victory over Muhammadi Sabata at Fox Sports Africa Boxing 7 at the Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom in Durban in June 2018.
Fox Sports Africa Boxing 9 will get underway at 20h00 CAT and is live on Fox Sports 2, the Fox Sports Africa Facebook page and on Black in South Africa.
