    A new fight has been added to the EFC AFRICA 16 card as Tiny Strauss takes on Ricky Misholas in a heavyweight battle. The event will take place at the Carnival City Big Top Arena on Oct. 19.

    News of the new matchup was announced today via official press release.

    The event will feature a headline bout between Ruan Potts and Bernardo Mikixi who will face of in a heavyweight showdown.

    Tiny Strauss first competed in EFC AFRICA’s one and only super heavyweight bout, where he lost by TKO in round one. He’s now back and in better shape, ready to prove that he can throw his weight around with the best at heavyweight.

    Here is what Strauss had to say about the upcoming bout:

    “I’ll be honest; I’m looking forward to being back at EFC AFRICA so that I can hurt people. If I get my way, Ricky’s getting knocked out in the first 10 seconds. We’re similar because we’re both boxers that like to brawl. Ricky’s a strong striker and he hits hard, but I’m a Dutchman, I can take it.”

    Misholas made his entrance at EFC AFRICA 12 with a stunning KO victory, but then found himself on the receiving end of a flurry of heavy punches at EFC AFRICA13. He hopes to rebound from the recent loss with a solid win against a much bigger opponent.

    Here is what Misholas had to say about the upcoming bout:

    “In my last fight I was super fit, but took my opponent lightly, made a mistake with my movement and paid the price. I want to work my way to a title shot and I won’t leave without a win when I fight Tiny. I know him personally, he’s a good guy and he can stand up for himself. He lost his first EFC fight, but that doesn’t make me think he’s a bad fighter. I know how it is to train hard, then make one small mistake and lose a fight. We are both coming from a loss, and I know neither of us want to lose again. I know Tiny weighs a lot more than me, I’ll be about 105kg, he’ll be 120kg, but that doesn’t bother me. I know about it and I’m preparing for it, so expect a hell of a fight because my fists are fully loaded!”
