Tonight he will go for a second title defense in a rematch against Thabiso Mchunu.
Thabiso Mchunu (23-5, 13KOs) will be fighting for a world title the second time in his career. The first title shot he had came in 2016 when he went up against the undefeated WBO crusierweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and was knocked out in the fight.
Mchunu and Makabu first met in 2015 and Makabu got the better of him and win the bout via KO.
Tonight Mchunu is looking for redemption and his chance at championship glory, he is so confident he will win the title he even called out Mexican super star Canelo Alvarez.
This will be a fight that South Africa will be sure to enjoy with two of their fighters going toe to toe and also a unique battle between two southpaws.
The Co-Main event is a battle between two undefeated American Heavyweights for the WBA regular title.
