'Baby' Jake Matlala: World champion in two weight divisions who was named as his favourite boxer by Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela was four days out of prison when I asked him to name his favourite boxer. "Oh, it has to be Baby Jake," he said, beaming with delight, having been serious and sombre for the previous hour. Yes, Baby Jake Matlala."
