Chris Van Heerden lands in America: July 18th.
In preparations for an imminent fight with British contender Ashley Theophane, IBO Welterweight champion Chris Van Heerden makes another leap towards his dreams – heading to America. On July 18th, Chris Van Heerden will depart from his home area of Gauteng, SA for New York City to begin a prolonged training camp. He plans to get much work done in “The city that never sleeps” with some of the best sparring available – including African boxer Thabiso Mchunu.
This experience is well needed for his fight with Theophane, which is expected to take place “later this Summer” either in the United Kingdom or New York, it will require his most devoted focus in camp ever. Theophane is a world-class fighter with a stiff jab, long reach and superb boxing ability. Van Heerden will need to siege control of the fight early to avoid falling behind against his opponent.
As previously mentioned one of his main sparring partners for this fight will be Crusierweight title contender and heavily explosive boxer Thabiso Mchunu. He is set to fight on August 3rd in New York against Eddie Chambers. Mchunu can mock a more engaging version of Theophane with his long reach and capricious style of fighting. He himself is gaining the opportunity of the lifetime against Chambers and will be training at an equally vigorous pace as Van Heerden.
Team Van Heerden is thrilled about the opportunity to open to a wider audience. Training and perhaps fighting in the United States will increase his marketability on a much widened scale and allow his career to blast off against the biggest names in the fight game.
Don’t miss Chris on Steve Bunce’s Boxing Hour June 2nd in the United Kingdom! He will be continuously discussing his upcoming fight, his career and future in the coming months.
