    Tommy… Just watched your fight dude. You are a legend in the making. I admire your confidence, boxing excellence and your arrogance, which is part and partial of all great boxers. I’m not a boxing specialist, but you make me proud bru. You are an asset to South African sport. Keep it real and… eet hom soos ‘n mielie, moer hulle my bru…
