Austin: I’ll prove I am the He-Man
DULCHA NOT IMPRESSED BY HIS OPPONENT
He-Man will step into the ring at Carnival City on Saturday night looking to become the master of the Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) universe.
England’s Stuart Austin – affectionately known as He-Man – comes to South Africa to face arguably his toughest opponent when he takes on light-heavyweight kingpin Champion Dulcha of the DRC at EFC65.
Austin made an impressive EFC debut at Sun City a few months ago when he despatched the very dangerous heavyweight Elvis Moyo in three clinical rounds.
Dulcha – unstoppable since strapping the gold around his waist way back at EFC45 almost two years ago – was unconcerned and less impressed with that performance.
“Austin was like a chicken (against Moyo), running around. That fight didn’t prove anything. We are here to fight, please do not run away like a chicken,” Dulcha pleaded with his British opponent.
Regardless of where this fight ends up – be it on the ground or standing – there is certain to be fireworks between two men who have grown to dislike each other over the last few months.
The co-main event on this stacked fightcard sees the return of former featherweight champion Boyd Allen, who makes his way back to the hexagon after over a year on the sidelines due to injury.
Allen has been working his way up the ranks since losing his title to Scotland’s Danny Henry at EFC44.
Standing in his way this time is little-known and undefeated Calum Murrie – who incidentally is a compatriot and training partner of Henry.
The winner of this bout will almost certainly guarantee themselves a shot at the featherweight title.
