South Africa's most famous road runner‚ Bruce Fordyce‚ is looking for a rematch with the gun-toting attacker who knocked him off his feet while he was out on his morning run on Friday. "The odds were stacked against me because he had a gun and‚ if I could‚ I would want a rematch‚" an upbeat Fordyce told TimesLIVE just hours after two gunmen robbed him of his shoes while out for a run in a Johannesburg surburb. "The ordeal was quite scary at the time‚ but now I am fine. I am not hurt badly. I have a severely bruised ego because I lost the knockout match and went down in the first 30 seconds‚ but it was an unfair fight."
