The Super Four cruiserweight tournament continues to gain momentum with interest from all corners of South Africa.
Given the excitement, Golden Gloves has agreed to have a special belt made for the champion, who will be crowned at Emperors Palace in October.
He will get to keep this in honour of winning a tournament that offers both intrigue and anticipation.
Golden Gloves boss Rodney Berman revealed that he was also contemplating making the four-man tournament an annual event depending on what happens to be the liveliest division above welterweight at the time.
Twice he’s opted for cruiserweight – Thabiso Mchunu won the inaugural Super Eight in 2012 – but Berman says he will consider other weight classes.
It’s in keeping with his habit of offering something different on an annual basis and deserves to be applauded, particularly in a tough economy.
