Boxing Grannies Pull No Punches in Johannesburg Gym
The boxing grandmothers, many over 70, train twice a week in the South African city and claim to feel stronger than ever.
"Boxing Gogos" pray before a training session hosted by the A Team Gym in the Cosmo City suburb of Johannesburg on Sept. 19, 2017.
The "Boxing Gogos," or "Boxing Grannies," are trained by Coach Claude Maphosa who is planning events in other areas for others who have been inspired to box.
