Being a champ out of the ring: iLIVE
"The curse of the ring" (October 4) once again highlighted the knockout blows that can bring all who fail to plan to their knees, perhaps never to rise again.
Some, through sheer tenacity, were able to beat the count. One is Elijah "Tap Tap" Makhatini, who not only packed a fierce left hook, but a good brain to match. When last I heard, the former unified South African middleweight champion was running a successful trading and bottle store in KwaDukuza. An interview with "Tap Tap" might show how boxers can dodge financial knock-outs.
