Profile of AussieBoxer (22)
G'day! I'm an Australian southpaw boxer. I'm lucky enough to be married to Harborfighter who has emigrated from the USA to live with me in Adelaide, Australia. We both have family and friends in Europe and the USA, so travel overseas fairly often and usually bring our boxing gear on these trips. Always looking for good, hard matches with other experienced and trained boxers, in a ring if possible. We sometimes organise boxing events in hired rings, to maximise the number of opponents we can take on in one place over 1-2 days. Happy to tutor beginners in the fundamentals of technique and take novices for their first sparring sessions at these events. Harborfighter runs boxing classes twice a week in Adelaide at which I train and assist.
We have been fighting together since 2004 and both believe there's nothing like a couple of all-out rounds to really bond men together. Drop us a line if you think this way too and hope to see you in the ring one day!
Update: I have begun a small business as a Personal Trainer specializing in Boxing in the last few weeks. Check out my website: https://robryk.wixsite.com/website and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BoxingPTwithRob

Over the years, I have met with him a few times. It has always been a good time and well worth it. He is quite the gentleman outside the ring but once the bell rings ,he is all business.
If you have the chance to spar with him ( or his husband Tom) definitely do it.
titledefense is recommended by AussieBoxer
I have known Titledefense for a number of years now and have always enjoyed his company. On my last trip to the USA, because I needed to rest an injury, I had to watch him fight from the sidelines of the ring Harborfighter hired for the event in Hanover MA, which was frustrating - he was looking great in there and I really wanted a couple of rounds with him. However, I'm sure he and I will have some good hard fights in the years to come. Highly recommended.
AussieBoxer is recommended by HarborFighter
AussieBoxer is the love of my life. He's my husband! I love him so much! We met on GlobalFight.com, of all places. We met in January of 2004. He was living in Australia, near Melbourne at that time, and I was living in southern Oregon in a tiny town called Harbor. We established a close connection online almost immediately and then just as quickly he decided to come visit me in Oregon! He arrived in early April that year and we have been together ever since. I had a ring set up in my garage in Harbor, and had become a local boxing coach for the neighborhood kids. I called my garage the Brookings-Harbor Fight Club. Rob and I gloved up almost immediately after his arrival. He had just begun training the year before, so he was at the beginning stages and was still learning his technique. He spent two weeks with me on that first trip of his to the US and we trained many hours each week. He got better and better, every time we boxed.
Now, years later, and after literally hundreds of rounds between us, AussieBoxer has learned his technique superbly and boxes like a pro. I am so proud of my hot husband. Hell...I am the luckiest man on earth. I am a boxer who is married to a boxer. We have a fantastic, awesome, and loving life together now. I love my southpaw!
HarborFighter is recommended by AussieBoxer
What can I say? Harborfighter has changed my life and bent my nose - just a little bit!
I was a novice boxer when I first stepped into his garage ring in Brookings (aka Harbor) Oregon, in April 2004. Somehow I made it though three rounds, wobbly on my feet, but still standing. I wasn't sure if I'd boxed a man, or a force of nature.
However, what I did know was that he was two dreams of mine - lover and fighter - wrapped up in one irresistible, hot package. So I resolved to both love him back fiercely and to counterpunch him hard and often!
Since then, he and I have clocked up hundreds of rounds together, bonding even closer with each torrid fight.
Experienced fighters who like a good, hard fight will get exactly that when they step into the ring with this ferocious boxer with a cast-iron jaw. For those just making their first forays into boxing, he is a professionally qualified and highly experienced coach. He runs popular boxing classes here in Adelaide at which I train and help out with instruction.
Of course, he gets the highest of all possible recommendations from his completely objective husband. I still have to pinch myself at times to believe I am married to a hot, fierce boxer who loves me so much he turned his life upside down to come and live with me Down Under. We are living the Boxing Dream together.

Skilled fit little guy who gave me some good boxing instruction and a friendly spar. Hope to meet you again next time we are on the same continent.
redlandguy is recommended by AussieBoxer
Evan uses his reach and strength to great effect when boxing. He loves to spar and train and can go all-out, all day. A true fighter and fierce competitor, out of the ring Evan is a delightful person whom I'm proud to have as a friend. A top-tier recommendation.
AussieBoxer is recommended by diggeroh
Great guy and wonderful student! Is more then willing to learn more as well as teach. No attitude just generally a gentleman's gentleman. Looking forward to meeting him again one day and seeing his progress.
diggeroh is recommended by AussieBoxer
Met this big bruiser at a boxing event in Cincinnati, Ohio. He gave me a lesson in boxing strategy, working me to the ropes and pounding me with short punches. Took my best shots as if they were nothing. A great fight, from which I learned a lot. Look forward to another torrid battle with him next time. Very highly recommended for any serious boxer looking for a good hard fight. Complete gentleman out of the ring, of course - most of the real boxers are.
ozboxer is recommended by AussieBoxer
Harborfighter and I met Ozboxer quite a few years ago at his apartment in Sydney where he was living at the time. We had a great time with him. Ozboxer gives and takes a great punch, and was a gracious and accommodating host to us. We have kept in touch in the years since and who knows, might meet up again one day for more hot boxing!
AussieBoxer is recommended by sid
I met AussieBoxer at a boxing meet near Frankfurt. We boxed some very nice rounds in the ring. AussieBoxer has good technique and stamina. Outside the ring he's a very nice guy to chat with. Hope we meet again soon for some rounds!!
sid is recommended by AussieBoxer
Harborfighter and I met sid at the boxing event at Champs Gym in Offenbach, near Frankfurt, Germany. It was a lot of fun to box him and he is enjoyable company outside of the ring too. He knows his way around a boxing ring! Hope we can do it again in the near future. Tot de volgende keer!
AussieBoxer is recommended by ChiBox
I've boxed Rob a few times when he has made the "Stateside Tour" from Australia. Is is great to have another southpaw to box with and Rob isn't afraid to mix it up with guys that are heavier and stronger than he is. Good boxer, and an great guy to hang out with at dinner (which will usually include his partner, HarborFighter...another great guy) after a good session in the ring.
ChiBox is recommended by AussieBoxer
Mitch is the real deal. A highly skilled boxer with crunching punches who gave me an excellent tutorial in Chicago a few years ago. I hope to trade leather with him again some time soon. Very highly recommended for anyone serious about their boxing.
AussieBoxer is recommended by midwestboxer
Aussie is a skilled boxer and a great guy. I was impressed by his passion for boxing and willingness to hop in the ring with me despite the size difference between us. If you have the opportunity to meet Aussie don't pass it up!
midwestboxer is recommended by AussieBoxer
Sparred this powerful, skilled fighter a few years back and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to get in the ring with him again when our paths next cross, Really knows what he's doing in the ring and generous with his time and experience. Definitely an A-list boxer.
AussieBoxer is recommended by Dubblejab
A skilled boxer, a willing teacher, and a gracious gentleman of a guy. A pleasure to know and to box.
wbx23 is recommended by AussieBoxer
He drove all the way from Munich to Frankfurt to a boxing meet Harborfighter and Boxingmarco had organised. He came up to me in full gear and announced: "You, me, box!" So we got in to the ring and had a couple of good hard rounds together. His verdict: "Super!" Then he showered, got changed, and drove back to Munich that same night.
I like his style. I hope to box him again some day.
AussieBoxer is recommended by BoxerCoachinmd
Have had the pleasure of boxing AussieBoxer twice and he is the real deal. He's a "south paw" with power in both hands as well as good head and foot movement. He's also a true gentleman outside the ring. If you get the chance lace up the gloves and go a few rounds with him, highly recommended.
BoxerCoachinmd is recommended by AussieBoxer
One of the best around. Have boxed him several times now and each fight just gets more enjoyable for the both of us. An easy-going, fun, but hard-hitting fighter you can count on to make things happen in the boxing ring (or in our case, the magic mat room!) Top-level recommendation.
AussieBoxer is recommended by Boxer VA
A great, skilled boxer. He's a tiger in the ring, but a true gentleman outside of it. Don't pass the chance to meet him.
AussieBoxer is recommended by fig4man
I have met Rob several times over the years and its always a fun blast to spar with him. Rob is nicely skilled and def a good opponent to glove up against. I look forward to sparring again with him in 2018
AussieBoxer is recommended by Ringerohr
He is a real fighter and not afraid of having a real fight.
Outside the ring he is a polite and gentle person.
I can recommend him to anybody who want to box.
Ringerohr is recommended by AussieBoxer
We had a great fight at a boxing event in Offenbach, near Frankfurt, earlier this year. Because of the large numbers of fighters all wanting to box at this very successful event, we had only a couple of rounds in the ring together. Well, he made them all count, coming at me guns blazing from the first bell! He is very strong, muscular and has great cardio; hits very hard, has good defence and can take a good punch, and moves around the ring quickly, attacking from different angles. Really, this is everything a serious boxer wants in an opponent. Hope to box him again some time soon - and, yes, we'll have a beer together afterwards! ;-) A great guy out of the ring, and a top recommendation.
britboxer28 is recommended by AussieBoxer
I have had two fights with the man now, one when I was still a novice and one much more recently, and both were total blasts. He is a completely real boxer who at the same time knows how to have fun. Definitely an A-list boxer and recommended to the highest level.
AussieBoxer is recommended by mdbxrwrslr
There is nothing worse than a southpaw boxing another southpaw, but AussieBoxer is my favorite southpaw to box with by far! Although he is tough and aggressive when the gloves are on and he throws a mean cross - just to let any prospective opponents know - he's a great guy outside of the ring, and someone that you would definitely want to box with and have as a friend. If you get the chance to glove up with him and don't take it, bad on you...
mdbxrwrslr is recommended by AussieBoxer
Another southpaw - and someone I don't need a stepladder to reach! Actually, reaching his chin is not that simple - he is well trained, keeping it tucked in, and behind a glove or shoulder. Fast too, and can move in-and-out all day, as befits a Masters boxer.
Have enjoyed a number of sharp, competitive rounds together in the magical mat room and we both want more so we can figure out the double-southpaw conundrum and really land some good ones on each other!
One of the good 'uns - a top-level recommendation.
AussieBoxer is recommended by boxercvy
A pleasure to be in the ring with Aussieboxer. Tough southpaw that provides a lot of challenges. Great guy to know outside of the ring also. Looking forward to the next meeting.
AussieBoxer is recommended by FrBoxer
Aussie has two facets.. an enthusiastic and challenging boxer in the ring and a charming and interesting guy. Two pleasures in one go. If you have the opportunity to cross his path, do not hesitate to meet him!
FrBoxer is recommended by AussieBoxer
Fast, fierce, fabulous...and French! I will never forget meeting and fighting him at the Champs event in Offenbach, Germany. All of the previous recommendations (including what I can gather from the ones in French and German) give a very accurate picture of what a dynamo he is in the ring, and what a complete charmer he is outside of it. Can't wait to meet him again and can't recommend him highly enough.
AussieBoxer is recommended by SilverFoxFight
Had an all too brief match with Rob a few months ago...he is a great gentleman and a patient teacher...could only wish that were the man next door! Don't hesitate for a moment stepping into the ring with this great fighter and friend! Deano
SilverFoxFight is recommended by AussieBoxer
Sparred this tough, lean, fit fighter for a couple of rounds at a boxing event in Cincinnati and saw him get better every round. Learned this was his first time in a boxing ring for many years. Sometimes a man needs to do what he yearns to do even if it could cost him a thump or two. Boxing is very much like life in this respect. Look forward to gloving up with him again next time round. Loves boxing and will definitely be up for a good challenge - highly recommended.
AussieBoxer is recommended by Boxer Daddy
A Good boxer and definitive Southpaw. He’s one of the reasons I learned to switch so I could teach a southpaw what it feels like to fight themselves. Always game and listens to instructions well. A TRUE Boxer and someone you will ALWAYS have a good time fighting against whether your catching or pitching leather. Aussie Boxer gets one of my higher recommendations for all around fighter.
Boxer Daddy is recommended by AussieBoxer
Premium boxer. Always in the ring. A wealth of boxing knowledge for fighters at all levels. Have sparred him a number of times over the years and have enjoyed each session enormously, coming away with new skills each time. Highest recommendation possible for anyone serious about their boxing.
AussieBoxer is recommended by waboxer
Great boxer that loves to slug it out. Always on time and has skill in power! He loves to travel so if you get the chance to get in the ring with him don’t let it pass you buy!! Great guy in and outside of the ring!
waboxer is recommended by AussieBoxer
Ex-Golden Gloves competition boxer - the real deal. I was fortunate enough to have several hard sparring sessions with him when I was living in Portland, OR and he would drive down from Kelso, WA to work out with and train me and other boxers at Harborfighter's gym Sweet Science. Learned a lot from both fighting and watching him. Generous with both his time and experience. A top-level recommendation for anyone serious about their boxing. Hope to glove up again with him one day.
Boxingmarco is recommended by AussieBoxer
This is the man who made the event at Champs gym in Offenbach possible. It was without doubt the best boxing event Harborfighter and I have ever taken part in. Two rings were in continuous use over two afternoons and evenings. Everyone invited rocked up, geared up and threw hard leather. Boxingmarco himself is a skilled, hard-punching opponent whom I greatly enjoyed boxing, and I definitely want more rounds with him when we meet again. One of the best - a top level recommendation.
dcgrappler is recommended by AussieBoxer
What we in Australia call a "total legend". I actually fought several guys from the DC area a couple of times in his mat room before I actually met the man himself the third time round. Then off came the shirt and on went the gloves - can't get better than that! Top-of-the-line recommendation.
realboxer is recommended by AussieBoxer
He is exactly as his username states: a boxer, and real. Harborfighter and I met and boxed him at an outstanding event at Champs Gym in Offenbach, Germany in December 2016. Classic technique and all class outside of the ring, too. Highly recommended.
