Warren Holly never brags about how great he is as a boxing teacher and what changes he brings to the lives of many boxers probably because it is not in his nature to dwell on his success.
He prefers showering others with praise, which is the main reason why Holly’s name doesn’t ring a bell for a larger section of the boxing fraternity. But if you’re a religious follower of the sport, you’ll remember the man who turned ordinary fighters from KwaZulu-Natal – Johnson Choma, Mlongesi Dlamini and Melusi Khoza – into household names.
Choma ended Giovanni Pretorius’ illustrious career in 1999. Dlamini won and successfully defended the WBF lightweight title five times before producing an upset in 2009 when he beat the cold Zolani Marali in the fourth round to win the IBO belt.
Hulley has also produced the WBA Pan African Super Bantamweight Champion, his younger brother Brandon, and is now his assistant. The Zimbabwean duo will help Lancelot Moyo in his bid for the ABU SADC lightweight title at the Portuguese Hall, south of Johannesburg, on Friday.
His tenth fight against Ken Fury will head the bill for The Fight Unleashed by promoter Shireen Hunter. As always, Holly had nothing to say, menstead it was immediate“Brilliant coach Gert Strydom did it all in a recorded message: “We have to be 100% fit because we’re up against Warren and Brendon Holly who I think are very good coaches.
“they“I’ve been in the game for a very long time, they know what they’re doing when it comes to boxing, so whenever I get on the field [ring] And you’re up against one of their boys, you need to bring your A-game, and that’s what we plan to do.“
Furey commended Hunter for adding him to her show.
“I promise I will not be discouraged,“ He said. “I will give an amazing performance to all the fans who will come to see me. I can“Don’t wait to get in the ring and showcase my talent; Everyone who wants to come to watch, my fans and people who don’t like me, if they want to come, that’s fine, I’ll also put on a show for them.“
