Losing boxer quenches thirst
29 January 2018
A few minutes after getting one too many uppercuts and a barrage of blows in a World Boxing Federation All-Africa heavyweight title against eventual winner Elvis “The Bomber” Moyo at the City Sports Centre over the weekend, Knife Didier of DR Congo silently slipped into Harare’s night life as he sought to put to rest his misery.
The heavily built Congolese pugilist who had a catchy hairstyle synonymous with Rhumba musicians, was spotted intimately having selfies with ladies of the night at the Portugal Sports Bar as he drank down his pain from the Castle Lite bottle.
In Floyd “Money” Mayweather style, Knife had ladies flocking him as he bought the beer for friends.
The only difference from the famous American famed boxer being that Knife was using a losers’ purse.
“I lost a tightly contested match which could have gone either way but Bomber won it. As of now I just want to have fun and enjoy the beauty of Harare night,” he said when this reporter approached him.
However, after sensing that he might have been talking to the media, one of the men who was in his company decided to downplay the bar visit.
“He is not after girls. We just came here to have fun and show him the places around,” said one of the men before they quickly escorted him away.
Many boxers are known for their extravagant lifestyles every time they get some money and fame.
