Richard Makore

Richard, from Kwekwe Zimbabwe, has boxed since he was a nipper.  He had his first competitive bout at the age of eleven, won Gold at the Zimbabwe youth games and as a senior was twice national champion in the light-welterweight division.  After boxing for the air force, he moved to Cape Town in search of better prospects.  A real nice guy but you don’t underestimate ‘Mr Nice Guy,’ he’s a serious minded boxer with a keen eye for the technical side of the sport whose reward comes from motivating his noviciates to get fit, into shape and skilled.
