Back to June / July 2011 Articles

                  
      

Back from my visit at the International Boxing Hall of Fame weekend in June at Canastota, where boxing greats Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez and Kostya Tszyu were inducted, as well Sylvester Stallone for his contribution to boxing with his six Rocky movies.

This was an amazing experience, mixing with boxing legends and also a big thank must go to my son Brian Mitchell Jr. for filming the whole event in order to allow South African fans an opportunity to see some of the footage on the new boxing
magazine programme Ringside. The programme will have a 9pm slot on Supersport on the last Thursday of every month.

In the July programme Bernard Hopkins the oldest fighter ever to win a version of a world title is featured.

The exciting young heavyweight prospect Flo Simba returns to action after his recent setback against Francois Botha, on a Golden Gloves tournament at Emperors Palace on August 29.

We also looked forward to the American debut of Tommy Oosthuizen the IBO super middleweight champion when he fights on the undercard of the WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez who faces Darren Barker on October 1, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
