South Africa's reigning IBO junior featherweight champion Takalani "The Panther" Ndlovu will challenge Steve Molitor for the IBF title in Canada on July 14.

Ndlovu's promoter Rodney Berman made the announcement this week. He said he secured this long awaited date after reaching an agreement with Molitor's management team.

"Ndlovu needed closure on the matter so that he could start preparing for what could be one of the biggest moments of his career.

"Indeed, once he beats Molitor, and I'm saying he will, the rainbow and all its horizons will be there for the taking", he said in jubilation.

"This fight will project the Soweto-based fighter into the realm of boxing's elite and should he win, he'll be a dual (IBO and IBF) world champion, much like Cassius Baloyi was when he beat Manuel Medina last year."

There had been reports that because of a disagreement between Molitor's two acting promoters, the bout may eventually go to purse bids.

But Berman, the ever shrewd promoter, prevented that from happening by reaching an agreement with the representatives of the Canadian champion.

Berman took the opportunity to repeat his plans of unification bouts for his champions - Thomas Mashaba (IBO featherweight), Nkosinathi Joyi (IBO strawweight), Cassius Baloyi (IBO junior lightweight), Mbwana Matumla (IBO junior bantamweight) and Malcolm Klassen (IBF junior lightweight).
