A biography of the South African boxing champion, Jake Ntuli.
"Jake Ntuli was born in Soweto in 1929. His family was very religious and Tuli became an alter boy. People called him an angel. After leaving school he became a successful amateur boxer. He turned professional in 1950 at age 21. In the ring the hard-hitting Tuli was a demon. In 1952 he won the British Flyweight Empire title and became the first African to do so."
Illustrated with drawings and black and white photos. Adapted by Richard Maguire for advanced level readers. Includes word list and a record of Ntuli's fights.
