Garth Taylor is considered a pioneer of the South African music industry; he is also a self-taught SAMA nominated artist, and is most renowned for being a chart topping singer-songwriter and recording artist.
What few people know though, is that Garth is also a fitness fanatic whose second passion is kickboxing (he won the SA Amateur Kickboxing Champion in the Lightweight Category in 2014).
On Friday 15 September Garth entered the White Collar Boxing ring for the second time on behalf of the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
Garth competed in the White Collar Boxing 19 event at Scarlet Ribbon in Modderfontein, in an effort to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness as well as to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust. White Collar boxing is essentially recreational and uses the sport as a means of personal development for people to push themselves and achieve individual objectives.
With many of our Little Fighters sending Garth video messages of encouragement, he could do nothing other than repeat his stellar performance of last year, and once again win his match – to the delight of all our Little Fighters! Congratulations, Garth, you are a real Warrior for our Little Fighters!!
A shout-out also goes to Andrew Savvides, Garth’s opponent for the great Fight and for his Support for Garth’s cause!
