EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print captured by Gaetan Cotton, we are transported back to the exhilarating world of boxing in the 1990s. The image showcases renowned South African boxer, Baby Jake Matlala, being carried through a door by none other than his esteemed fight promoter, Tommy Gilmour. Taken in November 1995, during a pivotal moment in Matlala's career, this photograph encapsulates the unbreakable bond between athlete and mentor. As Matlala is lifted effortlessly off his feet by Gilmour, their expressions reveal a shared sense of triumph and camaraderie. The backdrop of this snapshot further accentuates its significance - an era when boxing was at its peak as one of the most popular sports worldwide. The raw power and determination emanating from both men symbolize the relentless pursuit of success within this demanding discipline. Notably Scottish himself, Tommy Gilmour played a crucial role in shaping Matlala's career trajectory. His unwavering support and guidance propelled Baby Jake to become one of South Africa's most celebrated boxers during that time. Gaetan Cotton's expertly captured moment freezes time for us to witness not just two individuals but also an entire generation defined by their passion for sport. This print serves as a testament to the indomitable spirit found within athletes like Baby Jake Matlala and promoters like Tommy Gilmour who dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to their craft throughout the 20th century.
