MANDELA TRIBUTE PLANNED FOR WORLD TITLE BOUT

0

BERLIN: Special tribute will be paid to former South African president Nelson Mandela before Saturday’s world World Boxing Association (WBA) light heavyweight title fight in Germany, American promoter Don King said on Tuesday. Ten gongs will be sounded for Mandela just before the bout between Germany’s Jurgen Braehmer and Marcus Oliveira of the USA in Neubrandenburg, near Berlin, for the vacant WBA title. Mandela, who passed away last week, aged 95, was a keen sports fan and was a runner and boxer in his youth.
