Emperors Palace undercard- by Terry Pettifer

The added allure of again seeing South Africa's first-ever Youth world champion Tommy "Tommy Gun" Oosthuizen in action, when he challenges Brazil's big hitting Cleber Alves for the vacant IBO Youth super middleweight crown. In his previous outing, Oosthuizen outpointed another homespun favourite, Jared "The Storm" Lovett to claim the vacant IBO Youth light heavyweight strap.

Another high-profile attraction on the night sees Jason "Badman" Bedeman step into the ring against Grant "The Fireball" Fourie in a 12-round clash for the vacant IBO Africa lightweight title. That both fighters are unbeaten in 10 and 11 bouts respectively has notably enhanced the interest of this bout, which according to Promoter Berman, "promises to be a fever-pitched battle between two of the most talented young fighters in the country".

With a pair of hard punching cruiserweight practitioners like Ronnie Lategan and Ruben Groenewald baying for blood in one of the evenings two curtain raisers, fans can arguably expect to see one of the most explosive evening's of boxing in a long while and who knows, perhaps Berman will indeed see the "house full" boards go up
