On Friday the 22 November on a fiery summer’s evening in the Mother City Kalakoda Promotions hosted an evening of boxing action with SA Heavyweight champions going head to head at the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel.
The fight bill included three explosive heavyweight rounds, with the title championship going to SA Heavyweight star-child Kevin Lerena.
The event took shape of a black tie dinner with a combination of corporate tables and general admission seating in the ballroom of the iconic Cape Sun hotel.
“We are thrilled at the response and support we have had for the fighters, and the event as a whole”, said Jeremy Bean of Kalakoda Boxing. “Our aim to grow the sport, culture and exposure of boxing in the country and get it the respect it deserves. The fighters work incredibly hard to maintain both the physical and mental strength to compete and we are so pleased to see events such as the Heavyweight Explosion prove a success.”
The next Kalakoda event is planned for February 2014.
