As a child growing up in South Africa, Lovemore Ndou experienced poverty and the injustices of the apartheid system, witnessed atrocities committed against his family and community, was a victim of police brutality and saw his best friend gunned down in a street protest.
Yet, against all odds, Lovemore succeeded and rose through the ranks to become a three-time world boxing champion and then a successful lawyer, while making Australia his home.
He has been called “The Brainiest Boxer in History” courtesy of his extraordinary journey of self-education that has delivered seven university degrees. He now runs a successful Sydney legal firm in southern Sydney.
His extraordinary life story has recently been documented in the book TOUGH LOVE (New Holland).
A powerful public speaker, Lovemore’s story is one of inspiration, unshakeable hope and triumph.
