FORMER LOCAL BOXER Hilbert “Baby” Osbourne is seemingly down for the count.

Concerned residents say his bobbing and weaving had become progressively slower over the years because of neglect, and he seemed to have been dealt a knockout blow more than a week ago.

His only jabs in recent days have come from his smart mouth. And they are feeble, at best. So much so that neighbours called the ambulance, and then the DAILY NATION when that attempt to help was unsuccessful.

None of them wanted to be identified, but they said the alarm was raised when the former welterweight boxing champion failed to come out and sit on the makeshift chair just outside his dilapidated shelter.
