Hate the past, fight the future. The Themba Gorimbo story

Johannesburg, South Africa – “I don’t hate my opponent, I hate my past. But that past is what makes me into the person I am going to be in the fight.”

You may not know it, but you see Themba Gorimbo every day. He’s the young man handing out flyers at traffic lights.

He is the immigrant jumping the border, the vagrant sleeping on the city street, the jobseeker on the side of the road, the starving orphan, the illegal diamond miner, the torture survivor.

He is your gardener. Your cleaner. Your supermarket security guard…

And the undefeated number one lightweight contender.

Do you see him now?
