Former sports minister Steve Tshwete must be turning in his grave to see two top South African boxers being relegated to extras in a boxing card outside our borders when they should be topping the bill.
Zolani "Last Born" Tete, the country's most explosive boxer of this decade, will defend his WBO bantamweight belt against No 3 contender Sibusiso "Tiger" Gonya in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Saturday.
This is the first time that SA boxers fight each other for a world title outside the country.
Tshwete would have made sure that this WBO world title fight was held in South Africa.
Tete's first defence of the belt he was awarded in April will be staged by Frank Warren from the UK. Warren, who has worked with many African boxers including Thulani Malinga and Jacob Matlala, signed a contract with Tete in 2015.
