Francois Botha-Michael Grant Rematch in Play For March

By Rick Reeno

On November 19 at the Monte Casino in Johannesburg, South Africa, heavyweight veteran Francois Botha was seconds away from winning a decision over Michael Grant (48-4, 36KOs). Botha, who was ahead on points, got caught with a huge right hand which knocked him out in the twelfth and final round. Nicknamed the "White Buffalo," Botha (48-6-3-1, 28KOs) told BoxingScene.com that a rematch is already in motion for the month of March, in South Africa.

"We are going to do it again in March. It's going to happen," Botha said.
