South African super middleweight champion Khotso Motau has dumped Branco Milenkovic for Rodney Berman of Golden Gloves.

"We could not reach an agreement during our talks over the renewal of my contract, which ended last week, so I moved on," said Motau.

The tall, big left-hander from Dube, who was voted prospect of the year last year, has been fighting under the Branco Sport Production banner since his return from the Athens Olympics in 2004.

He said Milenkovic tried to convince him to stay.

"But I could not because he failed to meet my demands. There are bad feelings. This is a business decision," said Motau, who stopped Simon Mokoena in the 11th round in August to win the national title.

His skills are honed by Stanley Ndlovu at the Dube Boyz Club.

Milenkovic and his colleague Jacob "Baby Jake" Matlala both wished Motau the best in his endeavors.

They did not view Motau's departure from their camp, which boasts about five South African and seven international champions, as a setback.

Milenkovic and Matlala said Motau's demands were unreasonable and both parties agreed to part ways.

Apparently, their relationship soured after Motau won the national title.

Matlala, who introduced Motau to Milenkovic, described Motau as a good prospect who is neither a superstar nor a crowd puller.
