Cape Town cop Thembani ‘Baby Jake’ Mbangatha it aiming high as he is set to leave for England early on Saturday.
Mbangatha is leaving for England to finalise his preparations ahead of his fight against Commonwealth featherweight champion Nathaniel Collins from Scotland. The fight is going to be held at the Bolton Whites Hotel in Bolton, United Kingdom, on Friday, 26 November.
“We are leaving for England around 1am on Saturday,” the unbeaten Mbangatha, who is trained by Steve Newton, confirmed.
Mbangatha, who was born in Qumbu, Eastern Cape, has an impressive record having won all his 11 fights with five of them inside the distance while Collins is unbeaten in eight bouts.
Collins won the Commonwealth title when he stopped former Ghanaian junior-featherweight champion Felix Williams in July this year.
