Khotso Motau

The Soweto-born rising star failed to win a medal at the Athens Olympics and regards it as one of the most disappointing moments of his career. There are many who would argue that Khotso is wholly capable of repairing this by winning a world title as a professional. He ended 11 of the 12 fights without the scorecard having to be a factor as his foes were left lying on the canvas while Khotso was carried on the shoulders of his fans. His one loss was against Canadian Shawn Garnett, who outpointed him. That said, Khotso would do well to ignore talk of him being on par with other great middleweights of the world such as "Marvellous� Marvin Hagler. There is still a long road ahead.
