IBF Africa super featherweight holder Azinga Fuzile will take on former IBF super featherweight world champion Malcolm Klassen on October 21, at the Orient Theatre, East London.
South Africa's Fuzile, 22, is unbeaten in 11 fights, and has wins over former title contenders Macbute Sinyabi and Tshifhiwa Munyai.
Klassen, who won his IBF world belt twice, in 2006 and 2009, has 14 years on the talented Fuzile.
Klassen again tried for the IBF super featherweight belt in February this year, but lost to Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov.
Colin Nathan, Fuzile's trainer, said on The Sowetan of his man's chances: "Malcolm is a gifted former legitimate world champion who has enough to educate Azinga but Azinga will emerge as the professor.
