From the BBC:
As career changes go it’s a pretty radical shift in direction. Thandisizwe Meyi, from a township in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, had been planning to become a boxer. He even had a nickname “Tyson”.
But instead he is entering a very different kind of arena. Tyson, as he is still known, is going to be a sommelier – a wine expert, who will be trained in London to advise on wine in upmarket international restaurants.
