Cape Fight League Signs Sanctioning Partnership for PRO K1

Cape Town, January 2016

Following its announcement last week that Cape Town’s favourite fight promotors, Cape Fight League (CFL) will be turning professional, further developments have been made and are ready to be announced in the kickboxing K1 space, as well as pro Boxing and MMA.  

“Cape Fight League will host SAKA PRO sanctioned events giving fighters the opportunity to earn WACO provincial, national, intercontinental and world titles for K1 in South Africa, this means there will be an official ranking system put in place, therefore real champions,” said the organizations president, Ivan de Vries.

Mr de Vries added: “We will also be hosting Pro Boxing events sanctioned by Boxing SA as well as Pro MMA events sanctioned by MMASA, it is simply wonderful news that all CFL’s events will now be sanctioned by the South African National bodies in all the codes that we present.”

“Having always been interested in the development side of the fight game, we now provide a platform for South African fighters to further develop their talent to international levels, by competing against American, European, African and Asian opponents,” De Vries added.

The first SAKA, WACO sanctioned event takes place 26 March at Suningdale Sports Complex in Parklands and features three exciting titles fights:

Adrian Van Wyk (Tricore) Loss vs Kulekani Hlongwa Loss (Lion’s Den) 5 rounds 3 Min under 84kg, Light heavy weight division.


Sors Grobbelaar (Two Brother) vs Juan Bezuidenhout   5 rounds 3 Min Heavy Weight.


Lucky van der Mokate (Young Guns) vs Michael Clacher (Thai Holics) 5 rounds 3 Min Under 60.1 Kg. Lightweight division



Our aim is to ensure that we provide the best possible fight opportunities within all the fighting styles showcased at Cape Fight League events. We hope with the CFL going pro and with the SAKA, WACO, SA Boxing and MMASA sanctioning agreement that this will be achieved, “added Matchmaker Anthony Kettle.
