The brother of former world boxing champion Duke McKenzie is fighting to become London's next mayor. Winston McKenzie, 50, is hopes to become the Conservative candidate for in the 2008 elections. He said: "I'll stun the world. London will see its first ever black Mayor. The history books of politics shall be re-written, changed forever".
Previously Mr McKenzie was the spokesman for sport and policies for Robert Kilroy-Silk's party Veritas. He joined the Tories after David Cameron was elected leader.
The main issues he wants to tackle are immigration, education, grassroots sports, culture, tourism and community welfare.
Backing his campaign are media agent and former Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion Derek Williams, and Marianne Bowness, the former wife of Conservative Lord Peter Bowness.
Mr McKenzie said Britain needs tighter controls and fears an "apartheid system" is developing in schools which "could bring this country to its knees in years to come".
He said people are disillusioned with the current mayor Ken Livingstone and "the fact that I am a black man will appeal to people".
Mr McKenzie had his own success as an amateur boxer and won international honours for England.
His brother Duke won world titles at flyweight, bantamweight and super-bantamweight.
