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.

Congrats to him. He had a good career. I still remember his classic with Nate Campbell. I have no idea how he shrunk down to 135 in that frame and took all those body shots, and still win.
