Michael Ramabeletsa (15-15, 6 KOs) aka the “Trouble Maker” is a talented and skilful Super bantamweight from South Africa but now calls Preston in Lancashire his home.
The 35-year-old, who made his first UK appearance in 2011 against world title challenger Martin Ward, has been in with some very good boxers. He has shared the ring with people like former world champion Paul Butler and current WBA World super flyweight titleist Kal Yafai. Taking a lot of big fights at short notice, and in defeat he has always given a very good account of himself.
Now on a three fight winning streak, he has been given a chance to fight for the English strap and after a good strong camp feels it is now his time to shine.
We spoke to Ramabeletsa ahead of his English title fight against unbeaten prospect Josh Kennedy at the historic York Hall on the 18th March. The Oliver Harrison trained boxer talks about his move to England, his camp and his plans for the future.
