What a small world it is!Well, who would have predicted Avril is related to retired boxer Philip Waruinge?
The Itel brand ambassador and singer could not hide her joy after she met her grandfather.
‘’Saying that I am humbled having met this man is an understatement.. Very few people know that I am the granddaughter of the living legend Boxing Olympian Phillip Waruinge.. hearing tales about him from his childhood friend and boxer as well, Jimmie ‘Pap Pap’, made my heart so full,’’ she posted.
Waruinge is one of if not the most decorated boxer in Kenya. The Murang’a born boxer’s achievements include a silver medal in 1972, bronze medal in Mexico in 1968, two gold medals at the Commonwealth games and a gold medal at the All Africa games during his day when he reigned supreme.
The legendary lightweight boxer retired a few years later having won 14, lost 10 and drawn 1.
