“The boxing tournament celebrating the birthday of the late struggle icon Nelson Mandela came and went.

There is no doubt that Xaba Promotions and Events (XPE) worked their butts offto ensure the event was a resounding success, and if consideration is taken that the promotions did the work on its own without the aid of an event management company, then kudos to XPE, especially tournament coordinator Sibongile Matiti.

Government heavyweights were in attendance and a host of other officials including the SABC top brass.

The event was well-attended with almost all the tables sold out, while the action in the ring reciprocated its standard.” – Daily Dispatch
