It was at the same venue that Thysse lost via a split points decision in the WBA Pan African junior middleweight belt on May 10 last year. The second fight will take place on March 21. Allen's belt plus 60% of the R750,000 purse money that will be paid by Golden Gloves to the winner are at stake. The winner has also been promised a top 15 rating by the WBA.

Thysse is trained by Damien Durandt while Peter Smith is in charge of Allen's career. Thysse has been a professional boxer since 2015 and has fought 81 rounds with 12 wins, two losses and a draw.


On the other hand, Allen is a former mixed martial arts fighter, who is still a newcomer to the sport of boxing. Having fought his first pro fight in 2018, Allen remains undefeated in five fights with only one championship bout, which he won against Thysse.
