Former boxing promoter and trainer/manager Sidwell Peloareng Lekoete, pictured, will be buried on Thursday.

He died last Wednesday at Chris Hani-Baragwanath Hospital after a long battle with cancer.

Also known as SP, Lekoete was well known in the boxing fraternity in the 1960s and 1970s as a trainer and manager during the heydays of his boxing kid brother Oupa "Kid Dynamite" Lekoete. The funeral service will be held at the Methodist Church in Dube, Soweto, from 8am until 11am.

He will be buried at West Park Cemetery.
