“Old Bones” Magwaca
Boxing star and WBF, IBF Intercontinental and WBA International bantamaweight champion Mzuvukile “Old Bones” Magwaca.
He is now learning to walk again after an operation to sort out his leg just above his knee, where an R4 rifle bullet broke his bones during a robbery. Learning to walk again does not necessarily mean that Magwaca will be able to box again.
