Fes Batista: From Race Hate Victim to the Mayweather Boxing Gym

Fes Batista

Every so often boxing throws up a feel good narrative – the story behind Mayweather Boxing Gym‘s latest must see attraction, Fes Batista, certainly represents such a case. Batista was bullied & harassed by perpetrators of racial hatred in his native Britain – even considering suicide – as recently as only a few years ago.

He rallied & through his talent for boxing & desire to succeed as a fighter has managed to dramatically alter his life trajectory & is now seen as a hot prospect from both a sporting & marketing perspective as boxing seeks out the next Amir Khan/Prince Naz Asian-British superstar. One can not help but wish this fine young man well & salute his dedicated power of will to overcome race hate & bigotry.
