On Saturday we were informed that two promising Filipino fighters were set to get title fights in South Africa on April 24th.
One of those fighters will be unbeaten Featherweight hopeful Randy Braga (15-0-1, 3) who will attempt to claim the IBO Inter-Continental strap as he takes on the dangerous Macbute Sinyabi (24-4, 19). The unbeaten Braga has won his last 3 bouts following a technical draw in February 2014 against Jonel Albio but has yet to really face anyone above Filipino domestic level. Although talented we're unsue how good the 27 year old really is, and his lack of power may well be an issue, especially on the road. As for Sinyabi the South African is a serious puncher and in fact he started his career 18-1 (18). In recent year Sinyabi has struggled to put opponents away but a couple of stoppage wins over Thabo Sonjica proves that he can hit, and he can hit hard.
The other bout will see Renz Rosia (11-2, 5) battle against the very talented Makazole Tete (12-0-1, 9) in a bout for the IBO Inter-Continental Flyweight title. The 26 year old Rosia has won his last 9 after a 2-2 start to his career, with one of those losses coming by injury based stoppage to the very capable Cris Paulino. Although in good form Rosia has been facing limited foes and will be taking a huge step up in class fight Tete. For those wondering Makazole Tete is the brother of current IBF Super Flyweight champion Zolani Tete and many in the know actually rate Makazole as the better of the brothers. If that's true then Rosia is in for a very painful night.
