Joshua vs Klitschko

It’s almost that time, the time for a heavyweight great to get exposed. Joshua is the favourite going into the fight but has never really been tested by a great of the sport before, Wladimir Klitschko. With so much more experience than AJ it is going to be extremely difficult to call. All we hoping for is for a bout that gives us something more than the Haye/Bellew fight.

The magnitude of the fight does not just extend to the fact that they are both exceptional boxers but because if AJ wins this he can finally get our respect. Yes, 18 bouts, 18 KO’s…this means nothing if he is not beating greats, which I think we all know he can and should do. Exciting fight ahead of us…who’s your money on?


MLB and African History Made

For the first time ever, Africa has a representative in the American Major League Baseball. Gift Ngoepe who was signed in 2008 by Indianapolis Indians at the age of 18, is not the first South African to sign a professional contract but is thee first to actually play an MLB game.

Seems to be that he has been impressing in the lower leagues with his stats.  Baseball America rated him as the “Best Defensive Infielder” in the Pirates minor league system each of the last five seasons (2013-2017). Not bad chief. We’ve got no doubt that he’s going to do the continent proud (he already has though).



Reebok Pump

The Reebok Pump…ahead of its time. For this week’s throw back Thursday we look at an iconic shoe. Pump it up and you were able to jump over buildings (well that’s what we thought). Technology wise, it secured the ankle for all the ballers, for the rest of us…we could pump it up. I genuinely do not need to sell you on why this is one of the greatest sneakers ever created, we can just collectively appreciate what Reebook produced for us, and let’s be honest…they set a trend. Namaste Reebok.

African A/W 17 (Coats)

As we finally get into a season which slightly resembles an Autumn, it’s time for us to change up our style as well. Now I don’t mean change up your style and start dressing like the Fresh Prince (even though we will always encourage the uptown fade), but now we can at least wear longer attire. It’s the season to dress up a bit more. Put those vests and short-shorts deep into your wardrobe and get out those jeans and shirts. 

Renny Man looks at their favourite coats for the African “Autumn”.
