Erasmus throws some jabs
As the league season drew to a close in spectacular fashion for the Sea Robbers over the weekend, solidifying second-place in the DStv Premiership with a resounding 4-0 victory over AmaZulu, the focus now shifts to Saturday's Nedbank Cup final.
Erasmus and the rest of the Buccaneers will hope to secure their second trophy of the season against Sekhukhune United at Loftus Versveld, and the experienced forward share an intense boxing workout leading up to the big game.
The ex-Sundowns star will hope his hard work off the pitch will see him keep a starting place in Jose Riveiro's side, and if his latest boxing workout video is anything to go by, Erasmus is more than ready for Babina Noko at his old stomping ground.

Erasmus is being trained by Sibu Gamede at the Fight Club gym in Morningside, north of Jo'burg. Private boxing training sessions are priced from R1 200 to R3 900 at the gym, with Erasmus most-likely paying the latter to improve his fitness levels.
