For obvious reasons, the tragedy has made international news because boxing is an international sport that carries the same level of risk as has happened to Buthelezi.

And Boxing SA has vowed to conduct a thorough medical examination into what exactly might have happened to Buthelezi, possibly in order to prevent catastrophic mishaps like this from occurring in the future.

In one’s view, Boxing itself is a dangerous sport, but there have been medical advancements to deal with some of the effects of heavy blows in recent years.

Of course, some would suggest for boxers to wear protective head shields, but that has never been something the industry explored the possibility of considering.

The OnlineNewzBible team sends its most sincere condolences to Buthelezi’s family, May his soul repose peacefully.
