Their commitment to empowering individuals resonates with my personal ethos of continuous improvement and achieving greatness for Africa and South Africa. I’m looking forward to being the first South African UFC World Champion and resident African UFC World Champion and the support this partnership will bring, will allow me to focus on my craft and reach new heights in my career.  

“My aim is to motivate all the people of Africa, and create awareness of the greatness and the ability of us, the South African nation, as individuals and as teams to appreciate and realise how we can prosper and impact the world, and Banxso will offer me a platform to do so. This partnership also creates an opportunity for me to start my online trading journey with Banxso and I am eager to be guided and learn from their trusted and experienced team, the very same way I have relied on the trusted and experienced advice of my coaches in pursuing my sporting career.”

Manuel de Andrade, COO for Banxso, emphasised the significance of supporting athletes like du Plessis, saying, “We are excited to welcome Dricus to the Banxso family. His dedication and determination mirror our values of innovation and excellence, and the importance of showing up consistently to reap favourable rewards.
