  • Description

    In the United States, there's been a row over the decision by the government to revoke the visa of a white South African boxer. Heavyweight Kallie Knoefze shot a black youth -- who later had a leg amputated -- when he was a policeman in Pretoria. He was due to box American, Bill Sharkey, in Miami on January the thirteenth, but now the fight has been called off. One of those who led the moves to have Knoetze banned was boxing promoter Don King.
