Professional heavyweight boxer Joshua ‘Red Beast’ Pretorius and his father/coach Corrie Pretorius set up a small gymnasium for children to utilise on a daily basis.
On top of this handover, Red Beast Boxing will once a month visit Ngwelezana to train the youngsters and identify potential fighters to move into the amateur ranks.
‘This set-up will help get the children off the streets and not only aid them to live a healthier and fitter lifestyle, but also give them purpose to work towards a goal.
‘This is a great day for us as residents of Boxing Road as it will help us revive the sport fully in our area. You never know whether or not a future champion will come out of these ranks.
‘Sport unites people and this is a perfect example of promoting goodwill,’said Mthiyane.
