Sipho Taliwe Will Face Godfrey Nzimande on March 18th

Sipho Taliwe will defend his WBC international junior lightweight title against Godfrey Nzimande on March 18.

The fight will be the main bout of a Golden Gloves-African Ring Promotions box-and-dine bill at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park.

Taliwe, who is ranked fourth in his division by the WBC, was held to a draw by Nzimande three years ago.

A veteran of twelve years as a professional, Nzimande may find it difficult to repeat the feat against the impressive, in-form champion this time.

But his experience could be an important factor in a fight that Taliwe dares not lose because a title fight against WBC champion Gamaliel Diaz is a possibility if he wins well.

In the main supporting bout, Jasper Seroka will take on Joey Stiglingh for the vacant African Boxing Union junior lightweight title.

Stiglingh lost a closely contested fight against Seroka in 2011 and has finally been granted the rematch he has wanted ever since.

The organisers also announced that up-and-coming Kevin Lerena will fight an opponent yet to be named after his victory over Paraguayan Javier Corrales at the same venue last Saturday.
