Boxing guru and internationally acclaimed promoter Rodney Berman of Golden Gloves Promotions will throw a party in Johannesburg today to cele- brate King Cassius Baloyi's sixth world title.

Berman will salute Baloyi and his management team of esteemed mentor Nick Durandt, assistant trainers Kenny Mabunda and Damon Durandt (Nick's son) for Baloyi's success in ending Mzonke Fana's reign as the IBF junior lightweight king.

That victory in Mafikeng, North West, made Baloyi the only local boxer ever to have won six titles in three different weight divisions.

Baloyi's accomplishment received massive media coverage, and one would expect his luncheon to be given even bigger coverage than the actual fight.

But Berman showed that he is no publicity monger.

"This is not for publicity," he said.
