Watching the World Cup in South Africa, especially that opening bit they would play with the African choir in the background, made me downright nostalgic for this little gem of an 90’s movie called The Power of One, based on the book by Bruce Courtenay. Every now and then it’s nice to see a kids movie with something more than flash and bang. So says Hoppie Groenwald, boxing champion, to a seven-year-old boy who dreams of being the welterweight champion of the world. Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. Bryce Courtenay’s classic bestseller is a story of the triumph of the human spirit – a spellbinding tale for all ages.

The triumvirate of Carl Froch, Ricky Burns and Nathan Cleverly are Britain’s current world champions. This is a true story – from my perspective and from my understanding of the family lore that has been shared with me.
Getting the chance to re-connect with someone from my past is a rare and unexpected treat and then finding out that we have something in common is even better. Blessed with a fantastic score by Hans Zimmer, set against the gorgeous scenery of Africa, this is an inspirational story that takes place in apartheid Africa.


It’s really just a nice, quiet little movie that showcases Africa, both the good and the bad. For the young Peekay, it is a piece of advice that he will carry with him throughout his life.
Through enduring friendships with Hymie and Gideon, Peekay gains the strength he needs to win out. It’s really a movie (and book) that touches the heart and soul of anyone who has even an ounce of humanaity in him (her). In the 1930s – my three grandmothers each faced dramatic and life-altering challenges. The launch of the Toller Cranston Memorial Fund took place at the Art Gallery of Ontario on June 25, 2015 and, like him or hate him, Toller Cranston was still the kind of man who could draw a crowd.
My thoughts are bouncing between two extraordinary men: South African Freedom Fighter Nelson Mandela in death and Heavyweight Champion George Chuvalo in life.

And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice. As a parent, I made it required viewing (reading) for all four of my growing (now adult) childern…a must see (read) for all parents (grandparents) concerned about the quality of human being they are raising.


Price, a quiet man, is yet to be tested fully, though given his power, when his punches land, opponents hit the canvas. Internecine rivalry between British heavyweights Tyson Fury and David Price has already begun.
Both unbeaten giants - 6ft 8in and, in Fury's case, 6ft 9in - they could not offer more contrasting personalities. Amir Khan will be looking for a summer title shot in the light-welterweight division after his one-sided victory over Carlos Molina last month. Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo has signed with Los Angeles-based Golden Boy Promotions, guaranteeing him an automatic ticket to fights on both sides of the Atlantic early in his career, which could propel him or push him under. A tough sojourn, but one that would rank with Lloyd Honeyghan defying the odds when he beat Donald Curry in 1986.
With British middleweights Matt Macklin and Darren Barker both back in fine form, and fit, the middleweight division in the UK remains powerful.
It could find that in some fine potential match-ups, with new names set to emerge onto the highest stage in 2013.
