Lawyer knocked out as boxing gym claims victory in rowdy bout
Attorney’s hopes of muting ‘noisy’ gym drenched after judge counterpunches against interim interdict
A boxing gym that runs early morning classes backed by “loud techno/dance music” has landed a knockout blow in a row about noise with the lawyer next door.
Attorney Trudie Broekmann and her husband, Gerhard van der Merwe, obtained an interim interdict on December 30 which left Drenched Boxing (https://drenched.co.za/) on the ropes by banning it from using amplification during classes in its heated Cape Town city centre premises.
Two months later, in an affidavit, Van der Merwe said: “The peacefulness of our home and my office since the [interim] court order ... have made such a wonderful change in our lives.”..
