There's Thulani Malinga, Vuyani Bungu, Jake Matlala, Brian Mitchell, Gerrie Coetzee and so forth, yes. But for every one of those names recognizable to "Western" fight fans was a Joe "Axe Killer" Ngidi, a Nkosana Mgxaji or Maxwell Malinga, who most boxing fans around the world have never heard of, but were nonetheless incredibly popular in South Africa.
