Fighting for the Men of Manus – December 2018

It was December 19th – just a week before Christmas 2018 – when I travelled to Port Moresby to fight alongside Ezatuallah Kakar – Manus Island detainee and professional boxer. The idea was to support him personally and to help raise awareness as Ezatullah fought “for all Manus and Nauru”

We had a lot of local media coverage in Papua New Guinea:

The Guardian also took up the story, and this helped spread it around the world

There was also an excellent post-fight wrap-up feature in Pakistan’s Express Tribune.

Even so, the most encouraging coverage, from my perspective, came when AAP picked up the story and it appeared in numerous Australian publications, including SBS online.
