By Edward Chaykovsky
Welterweight contender Isaac Hlatshwayo (30-6-1, 10KOs) has announced his retirement from boxing. The veteran lost five out of his last six fights. He held the IBO title at 135 and 147-pounds. And he also captured the IBF's welterweight title with a split decision over Delvin Rodriguez in August of 2009. During his career he also got victories over Nate Campbell, Phillip Ndou, Cassius Baloyi and Kaizer Mabuza.
Weird, I actually though Isaac passed away back in 2008. Oh crap, yeah that was Isaac Hayes... not Hlatshwayo. So, who is this guy again? Anyways, you'll be missed. Good luck, God bless, and all that stuff.Comment by Tonyu on 07-12-2013
