Default Botha shows how to do it, take notes, Tim Bradley!! Botha giving his belt to Schulz

After almost 17 years, Frans Botha apologized and gave Axel Schulz the IBF-belt, which Botha irregularly won after a scandalous fight in December 1995.
The white Buffalo was convicted of doping after the fight and the result was annulled later. The south african, until today, says that the PEDs have been planted on.
Now Botha visited Schulz in Frankfurt and gave him the belt.
"Sorry, Axel. You are the real champ. You won in 1995 against George Foreman and also in Stuttgart against me. You lost millions of dollars."
Schulz was touched by Bothas death-bed repentance and explained :"I am positively surprised and overwhelmed. I always had bad memories of Botha and the fight. It was a close fight but not my best. Frans now showed his human side, a big gesture. The belt will get a special place in my house."
After that, Schulz invited Botha to having a coffee.

Class move by Botha who's a bit different anyway.

I often saw Botha while training at the old Westminster gym in LA....

He always acted like he owned the place but he wasn't much to look at...

In sparring though, I never saw anyone get the best of him.

Well it is indeed.


I dont know about Pac-Bradley thou. Havent see the fight.

But what Botha did here, damn. Even it is 17 years later and possible ruined Schulz career at least did a lot of harm.

Off topic but does anyone remember Moorer vs Botha? Botha broke Moorers jaw and moorer finished the fight and won...

Okay well in the mean time lets do the rematch and if I feel bad enough for you, maybe just maybe in 2029 17 years later I may give it back to you perhaps cus Manny will likely need to take it to a pawn shop as he will be dead broke by then

Botha returned the belt after he cheated? How is that comparable to Bradley's situation? He hasn't done anything wrong. If Tim is on roids who's to say Pac isn't?

If it's anybody who needs to apologize it's the HBO commentators. Duane Ford has gotten lot of heat but he at least can justify his beliefs with reasonable answers.
