Despite his inexperience in the professional ring Ducar, who has height and reach advantages over Lerena, comes into the fight with the unknown factor which could prove dangerous for the champion.

There is an exciting undercard with Jabulani Makhense 7-0; 4 defending his WBA Pan African junior-welterweight title against southpaw Michael Mokoena 14-2; 9.

Among the other exciting young prospects on the bill are Aidan Quin, Ruarke Knapp, Keaton Gomes, Ricardo Malijika, Arnel Lubisi and Amador Kalonji.
