Promoter Nomvelo Shezi will stage her first international boxing tournament this weekend.
Being unable to win a SA boxing title did not kill the genuine love for the fistic sport.
Instead, it encouraged her to go a step further.
She is now a boxing promoter who has already made an impression by staging four tournaments in her home town of KwaZulu-Natal.
Her Nomvelo Promotions will make an introduction to the international arena this weekend.
