At a press conference held in Auckland Park near Johannesburg today, promoter Branco Milenkovic announced that Butityi Konki has joined forces with Branco Sports Productions. It was also announced that the company had signed contracts with former WBU lightweight champion Phillip Ndou and the current IBO bantamweight champion Simphiwe Vetyeka, and that Branco Sports Productions will promote their future fights. Former IBF junior featherweight champion Welcome Ncita and Vuyani Bungu the former IBF junior featherweight and IBO featherweight champion were also in attendance. Ncita will train Vetyeka and Bungu will look after Ndou. Milenkovic advised that Ndou will be fighting in the junior welterweight division and his first fight under their banner will be in November and that Vetyeka who will now move up to junior featherweight will possibly have his first fight in December.
