In a clash of South African-based Angolans, World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa Welterweight Champion Antonio Mayala will defend his crown against Henriques Lando on November 27 at the Vibrant Sports Studio in Cape Town.

For Mayala, 12-3-1 (6), it will be his third defense of the title he won stopping South African Jarred Silverman in June, 2017, and has retained against Congolese Benoit Makangila Vela a year later, and most recently South African Onke Duko in August of 2019.

Lando, 7-1 (6), twelve years the younger man at twenty-eight, is entering his first professional championship fight, but has mixed in good competition. His sole defeat came at the hands of undefeated former WBF Intercontinental Champion, and current WBO Africa titlist, Emmany Kalombo last year.

When Mayala defeated Silverman in 2017 he became the first and so far only Angolan to win a WBF title, and, besides the inevitable pride of beating a fellow countryman which will be at stake, it will be a motivating factor for him to keep that distinction come November 27.

Antonio Mayala vs. Henriques Lando will be one of two featured bouts on a championship double-header promoted by Jackie Brice and his Brice Boxing Promotions.
