Wesley Hawkey vs Denzil Wait announced for EFC 12

In the wake of the recent announcement of Tyron Rightford vs Donavin Hawkey, EFC Africa has confirmed yet another feature fight for its EFC 12 event taking place in March 2012.

Featherweight prospects Wesley “The Young Assassin” Hawkey (6-2) (#2 MMASA Featherweight Rankings) and Denzil “Redstarr” Wait (5-1) (#3 MMASA Featherweight Rankings) will square off in a number one contender match-up, the winner of which will undoubtedly fight reigning featherweight champion Demarte “The Wolf” Pena for the EFC Africa Featherweight title.

Both fighters, ranked second and third in the featherweight division, are undefeated in the Extreme Fighting Championship and have experienced few problems with their previous EFC opponents. Hawkey (2-0 EFC) defeated both Jean-Luc Kazadi and Victor Anyaogu within 2 minutes, while Wait (1-0 EFC) forced a verbal submission from Abdul Hassan at just 2:12 in the first round.

Hawkey vs Wait should be a true test for both men and a great spectacle for South African MMA fans.
