There is a change of opponent for former world champion Lusanda ‘Mexican’ Komanisi. 

The 32-year-old Komanisi is no longer facing unbeaten Nigerian boxer Riliwan ‘Real One’ Oladosu. He’s now going to clash against Kabelo Bikitsha in a World Boxing Association (WBA) Pan-African lightweight title fight at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday, 12 December. 

The new opponent for the former International Boxing Organisation (IBO) featherweight champion was confirmed by Tewo Promotions on Wednesday. 

The promotional outfit also added that it was pitting Komanisi against Bikitsha in order to make sure that the Mdantsane boxer gets closer to challenging SA lightweight champion Tshifhiwa Munyai. 

“This is in a quest to get closer to that mandatory spot to make the negotiations easy with Munyai’s camp at the same time advancing him in the WBA ratings,” a statement from Tewo Promotions said.  

Bikitsha, who was initially scheduled to fight against Gauteng lightweight champion Khaya Busakwe, has already signed to face Komanisi. Busakwe clashes with Talent Baloyi on Sunday, 28 November.
