More about:

Many know Nelson Mandela as the leading figure in the fight against apartheid. But Mandiba also fought for the sport of it  that is, in the boxing ring. Some draw parallels between his passion for boxing and his struggles to emancipate blacks in South Africa and the United States.

In this programme, we speak with a Dutch sports writer who published a book about Mandela as a boxer. The show was originally published on our website on 29 April 2011.

Presenter: Leon Ssenyange (Uganda)

Guest: Erik Brouwer

Duration: 29'54
