Takalani Ndlovu, Daniel Bruwer and Isaac Chilembe have finally found a home at World Sports Promotions (WSP).

They were homeless for almost four months after the split between their trainer Nick Durandt and promoter Rodney Berman.

Ndlovu is the former South African and IBO featherweight champ, Bruwer is the national light heavyweight champ while Chilembe is the ABU super middleweight titlist.

King Ramapedi of WSP announced yesterday that Ndlovu and Bruwer will be in action on March 20 at Graceland Casino in Secunda, Mpumalanga.

He said Ndlovu will fight Ugandan Jackson Asiku for the vacant WBF featherweight title. Bruwer could defend his title or engage in an international non title fight.

Ndlovu's last fight under Berman was on August 22 last year when he was outpointed by Fernando Beltran Jnr for the IBO belt in Nashville, Tennessee .

Meanwhile, national bantamweight king Simphiwe Vetyeka has officially bolted from Durandt's stable and joined that of Welcome Ncita back home in Mdantsane.

"I am disappointed in his departure," said Durandt who guided Vetyeka to five title defences.
