Editors Comment

African Ring Issue No 10 and going strong, as the world's biggest sporting event - The World Cup Soccer - draws closer to our country and the Super 14 Rugby hots up, we have a lot to be excited about in the South African sporting arena. As a sports fanatic, I am loving every minute of it.

Well done to African Ring's main man "Jeffery Ellis" as I call him for putting the greatest fighter of all time on this month's cover. Terry Pettifer and I feel that if ever there was a better pound for pound fighter than Sugar Ray Robinson, we haven't seen him yet. My other all time favourite is his namesake, Sugar Ray Leonard.

I am also pleased to inform you that I have signed (as manager) some very talented young fighters all of whom are trained by the great former South African Welterweight Champion Harold Volbrecht.

My fighers in no particular order are Jared Lovett, FLo Simba, Johnny Muller, Rudy Bruwer, Raymond Bloem, Chaz Wasserman and Keith Nkosi.

Golden Gloves have another star studded Box & Dine charity event on 27 April at Emperors Palace. In action we see three undefeated fighters Tommy Oosthuizen, Flo Simba and Hohnny Muller "Gunning for Glory". Sport fanatics brace yourselves, there is plenty to look forward to.

Happy reading
