Jackie Brice Boxing Promotions presents a World Boxing Federation (WBF) All Africa championship twin-bill on April 19 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Joshua Pretorius, fighting out of KwaZulu-Natal, will take on Ugandan Shafic Kiwanuka for the vacant Heavyweight title, while South African compatriots Lwando Mngambi and Lebogang Pilane square off for the vacant Super Flyweight crown.

Pretorius, 9-8 (5), is a former South Africa and African Boxing Union champion, winning both titles against undefeated Juan Roux in March of 2022.

His opponent, Kiwanuka, 5-0-1 (4), will be looking to become a two-time WBF All Africa champion, having won the title in 2019 in Uganda, but never got the opportunity to defend the belt.

Challenging for his first tile, Lwando Mngambi, 5-0 (2), is probably the favourite against Lebogang Pilane, 6-7 (3), but he is arguably fighting what is at least on paper his best opponent to date.

Despite his mediocre record, Pilane has proven his worth as he barely lost a challenge for the WBF International Light Flyweight title last year, by split decision to Sanele Mhlungu.

He is coming off victories against two other prospects, and will believe he can also defeat Mngambi to become WBF champion.
