Fanie ‘The Viper’ Prinsloo took part in the event on Saturday, June 4, held in Durban.

“I lost in the finals as my elbow was hurt. This is something I have to work on to get strong, there are no excuses. It is not easy fighting with only one hand or one arm, but I will be back at the Pretoria event. It is not easy fighting more than one fight a night and I am a proud professional LFS athlete,” were Fanie’s words.

The team also just want to thank the Lord for keeping all the athletes safe. And also send a big thanks to all their supporters, family and friends and every sponsor. Fanie also concluded by saying that without the abovementioned, it would be very difficult to compete at this level.
