Silence is golden for both bantamweight challenger Nkosana Sobethu and its division's new champion, Simon Ramoni.
They both want a shot at Silence Mabuza and they expect their fight this Friday night could earn them that, but they want to fight the IBO champion for entirely different reasons.
Simon Ramoni 21-6 (14), is 30 and has learned the hard way that an IBO title doesn't guarantee steady work, while a national title does. Ramoni moved down two divisions after he was stripped of his IBO title for inactivity in 2001. He made his way right to the top of the country's paying ranks by stopping Theo Modise at the Carousel in May.
