Boxing full of controversy

The result of the boxing title fight between Manelisi Mbilane and Thando Vukuza came as no surprise and there is no need to commission an inquiry, to review the match or for a rematch.

It was not the first time such blatant robbery has taken place in a South African ring. May I remind boxing followers the same thing happened during Lehlohonolo Ledwaba's first match against Cassius Baloyi. So, I do not think that finger pointing is appropriate.

My only advice is for the loser to join the Nick Durandt stable and adopt the slogan: "If you can't beat them, join them."

This kind of action is killing boxing and we will see boxers leaving the sport if this kind of behaviour persists.
