#TimeOut with Zwelinzima Vavi: "I was called "The Hitman" in my boxing days".

Zwelinzima Vavi was never one to throw in the towel!

Zwelinzima Vavi is well-known for punching from the hip, and his history shows it's always been his thing. He spoke to Jean Smythe about his boxing days and how he only fell in love with soccer and other sports later in life. Art imitating life, Zwelinzima Vavi has always refused to leave Cosatu even after all the controversy surrounding him, and recently he was let go from the movement but might fight his firing. A true boxer never throws in the towel.

Vavi spoke about his love for SugarRay Leonard and that he think Mayweather will win the upcoming bout with Pacman. "The Hitman', as Vavi was known in his boxing days, also touched on Rugby and football. Here is the chat with former Cosatu member Zwelinzima Vavi in detail..
