Eastern Cape Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture, MEC Nonceba Kontsiwe congratulated Sivenathi Nontshinga after defending his junior fly weight title belt against Regie Suganob on the 2nd of July 2023 in East London.
Nontshinga won the IBF title after he defeated the Mexican Hector Flores back in September 2022 and that fight was dubbed the fight of the year.
“We want to congratulate Sive, “The Special One” Nontshinga on his title defence. He was not just carrying the weight of the province or the country on his shoulders but the aspirations of the continent as well. He has done us proud. Equally, we want to thank his team for conditioning him for this fight. Congratulations to him and his team,” said the MEC.
