This weekend we were saddened to hear that the former world heavyweight champion Corrie Sanders was murdered in an armed robbery in a restaurant close to Pretoria. He has been out of the limelight for the past couple of years and most of us have forgotten that he was at some stage the world heavy champion. The way he achieved it is an even greater achievement, he knocked out the great Wladimir Klitschko. I must admit, I did not watch the fight and thinking about it, I really wish I did. The video below shows how he knocked him out early in the 3rd round. Seeing it actually brings a tear to my eye realizing how big a deal it actually was.

Wladimir Klitschko put a message on his Facebook page about the death of Corrie.
