[INTERVIEW] FV360 SITS DOWN WITH EX-FIGHTER, TRAINER AND AUTHOR FROM BOXRITE GYM BOBBY MAYNE
Fight View 360 was invited to sit down with the ex-Fighter turned trainer, and Author Bobby Mayne to speak about his life and his book called the Art of Boxing. Bobby works out of Australia utilizing the “Boxrite” system of teaching to train fighters in Boxing, MMA and Muay Thai.
I would like to start the interview by finding out some of your back story, where did you grow up and how did you get into Boxing?
My Father was stationed in Singapore with the Royal Marines during the Confrontation between Malaysia and Indonesia and this is where he met my Malaysian mother. I was born in Singapore in 1966 and I spent my early childhood there until 1971 as this is when the British pulled out of the country, my family which now included two younger brothers returned to the UK.
My childhood during the 70’s was not the best, my family relocated every two years so I never really settled or made close friends at school and because I was always the new kid at school and did not have many friends, I was a shy and insecure child that struggled academically and not very sporty as I was small in stature.
Life for my mother was also difficult as my father was always away with his work NATO exercises or his stint in Northern Ireland, she had to bring up three young lads playing the roles of father and mother and working shift work either at ASDA Supermarket or factory work to supplement the family income.

I graduated from Murdoch University in 2002 with a Bachelor of International Business, a well-rounded business program that included political, cultural and language units (Bahasa Indonesia) from the Asian Studies program making it a practical and relevant qualification in today’s business climate.
Since 2008, I have been employed by WA State Government Department of Finance in Government Procurement. My previous roles have included assisting the Department of the Attorney General and Department of Corrective Services (now both under Department of Justice) in procurement and contract administration. Currently, my role is a Contract Manager for a number of Common Use Arrangement Contracts for the whole of State Government.
I have also followed my passion and started a boxing and fitness business – ‘Boxrite Boxing Club’, where I train clients for fitness, as well as preparing amateur and professional boxers of all levels for bouts. I have had success with several amateur boxers winning national titles and representing Australia internationally, along with training professional boxers to win national and world titles (Daniel Dawson WBF World Light Middleweight Title (2013) and Filipino Rey Loreto IBO World Flyweight Title (2015). I regularly volunteer my time and services, going to The Philippines and assisting training under-privileged boxers and organising donations of boxing attire and equipment. I also volunteer in assisting fellow ADF veterans, especially those suffering mental health issues, by using boxing training as part of their therapy.
In 2009, I authored ‘The Art of Boxing: Your Guide to the Sweet Science’ to pass on my knowledge and experiences to coaches and competitors to improve their own training technique and coaching skills and tactics. I have since authored another four boxing training books.
