Brad’s Deadly Choice: To exercise for my mental health
Brad is a Dunghutti man who was born in Blacktown, Western Sydney, and currently lives on the Sunshine Coast.
He is an Olympic level professional boxer, representing Australia in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and the 2004 Athens Olympics.
He has also represented Australia in the 2002 and 2006 Commonwealth Games. Brad has won seven Australian titles in the amateurs and was the 23rd Australian Indigenous Olympian.
He’s been boxing since the age of 10, so he knows what hard work and training are all about. But Brad also says “losing is a part of sport that enables you learn some valuable lessons.”
Since becoming a professional Boxer in 2012, Brad has held the WBF Asia-Pacific Super-Flyweight Title and the WBU Australasian Super Flyweight title.
He works in the Deadly Choices Tobacco Cessation Team at the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health. As a Deadly Choices Ambassador, Brad loves working in community, and believes a sense of humour can go a long way, no matter how hard life can get.
