The dearth of serious contenders in the junior heavyweight division in Mzansi has enabled Thabiso "The Rock" Mchunu to control it.

With only three fights under his belt, this 20-year-old fighter from Cato Ridge in Pietermaritzburg already holds the national belt that will be at stake against Sean Santana tonight at Don Matemans Hall in Eldorado Park.

But the two fighters, who were discovered through Boxing SA's Baby Champs, should still be fighting for recognition.

Both fighters are capable of ending tonight's fight early.

Santana has three stoppage wins against a single loss via stoppage in one round by a washed up Patrick Madzinga, while Mchunu has flattened two of his three victims. One of those was Madzinga, who was stopped in nine rounds for the national belt in February.

But Santana, from Potchefstroom, caused a stir in May when he ended the illustrious career of Sebastiaan Rothmann with a fifth-round stoppage.

Mchunu, whose skills are honed by his father Alex Mchunu, a former KwaZulu-Natal provincial heavyweight champion, vowed to retain the belt.

The fight will be promoted by Future Boxing Promotions. It will be televised live on Blow by Blow at 9.30pm. The tournament starts at 7.30pm.
