|Lovemore N'dou: "He's No Floyd Mayweather" - Plus Thoughts on Michelle Obama & more...

By or provided from SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. By Lovemore Ndou: This Friday I will continue to fight the good fight
when I take on Rivan Cessaire at the Melbourne Pavillion, Flemington,
I will again donate my entire purse to the Youth Centre. I expect a
tough fight. I have seen Cessaire in action and he is quite sleek but
there is nothing he brings into the ring I haven’t faced before. The man
he imitates, Floyd Mayweather, I spent close to four months training
and sparring with. And the truth is there can only be one Floyd and
Cessaire is nowhere near the Money Man. Apart from that I believe with
my new focus, to give children a better start in life, God has brought
me back to boxing bigger and better than ever. In fact it’s not a
comeback. Think of it more as a resurrection. The truth is from now on
whenever I step into the ring I will be thinking of God. I will be
thinking of all the poor children of the world who need a helping hand.
And believe me I don’t give because I have too much. I give because I
know what it is like to have nothing. I give because I believe every
child deserves a better start in life. I give because I believe we are
all gifted in many ways but sometimes it takes somebody or someone
coming into your life to help you open your gift package. And if I can
help someone open their gift package why can’t I? It took other people
coming into my life to shape, make and mould the person I turned out to
be today. So why can’t I continue with that tradition?
listened to the First Lady, Michelle Obama, give a speech the other
day and I was so touched by what she said. She said, and I quote
“Success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference
you make in people’s lives.” Those words define me. I would rather die
with nothing in my name as long as I know I have made a difference in
other people’s lives. Hence I will continue fighting for the children of
the world until they take me out in a stretcher. I will fight harder to
see that children continue to be the pride of our nation.
I pray that world leaders learn something from the words of Mrs
Obama. Especially the leaders in South Africa where on a daily basis
these people continue to pocket so much money while the masses continue
to suffer. The masses continue to dwell in shacks while those in power
live in mansions. They send their kids to the best schools abroad but
nothing is done for the kids’ of the masses who are denied textbooks on a
daily basis. It’s like the leaders are forgetting that it was the
masses that helped bring about democracy in South Africa. If it wasn’t
for the masses these leaders wouldn’t be having these precious jobs they
hold today. It’s sickening to know that one child can have access to a
better education, and so much food which he can easily waste, etc,
whereas another kid can go a day or two without a meal and will never
get educated. And then we talk about a democratic South Africa. What’s
so democratic about it?
The whole issue comes down to money, power and control. People will
do anything to stay in power and control. There is no doubt that for as
long as these leaders educate only their close relations they will
continue to be in power, control and manipulate the uneducated mass.
People should take some advice from the late Jim Rohn. Rohn makes it
clear that whenever an opportunity arises, behold it but beware of the
person you become in pursuit of what you want. Don’t sell out. Don’t
compromise good friendship for what you want. Don’t violate your
principles. Don’t throw away some values just for some objective. These
leaders are selling out on the masses. They are violating their
principles in order to remain in power. They are throwing away some good
values just to remain in power and rich. And I refuse to be one of
these people. I will fight to see that every child gets the education he
or she deserves. If it means sacrificing my body and health in the ring
to make it a reality, believe me that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.
