The pride of South Africa & elite IBF Flyweight Champion Moruti Mthalane (36-2-0, 24KO) fights on Kazuto Ioka/Donnie Nietes undercard that showcases 3 title-fights on December 31st, New Years Eve.
Mthalane will be fighting Japanese contender Masahiro Sakamoto (13-1-0, 9KO).
Mthalane has been undefeated for the last 10 years after his loss to boxing legend Nonito Donaire, and has a TKO win over stand-out Bantamweight titlist Zolani Tete during that run. The Flyweight division over the last year and a half has had massive shake-ups, with titles exchanging hands, a couple upsets, and multiple top fighters vacating the division.
Mthalane remains the steady rock through it all between all of the turnover at the top of the division.
