2009 — Moruti Mthalane lifts the vacant IBF flyweight title when he outpoints Julio Cesar Miranda of Mexico at the Wembley indoor arena in Johannesburg. Mthalane had lost his first shot at the same crown the previous year after suffering a cut against Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire of the Philippines in Las Vegas.

2013 — Bernard Parker scores in the 56th minute as Bafana Bafana down world champions Spain 1-0 in a friendly at FNB Stadium. Spain had won the world title at the same venue in July, 2010.
