Sipho Taliwe is a quietly spoken and humble young man whose dedication to boxing puts a new definition to the word. The man known as the Tsunami holds a famous victory of Former IBF World Super Featherweight Champion Mzonke Fana and is 4 time WBC International Super Featherweight Champion & multi time national Champion.
A day in the life of Sipho Taliwe starts at 4.30 am when he gets out of bed, regardless of the weather, to run 10-12km. He then puts in a day’s work at his manager’s company, Beachway Auto Spares in Maraisburg, before going off to the gym at around 17.00. Here he will put in 10 rounds of sparring, 10 rounds on the heavy bag and a gruelling session of calisthenics and ground exercises.
A lack of dedication and determination are not factors which are going to impede Sipho’s quest for top honours in the boxing ring, and with the outstanding ability this may just be enough to get him where he eventually he wants to be – The new IBO Lightweight champion of the World.
“Daud Yordan & Australia look out because a South African Tsumani is coming” – Sipho “Tsunami” Taliwe
