Manny Rivera - Manager/CEO

This rising entrepreneurial manager brings over 10 years of boxing industry experience to MAK Boxing Management. Rivera has trained several fighters and worked as a corner man for some of the regions toughest boxers.

"Personally witnessing the pitfalls of fighters from the corner and in the gym, I looked to put together a boxing management team that worked not only for the success of a fighter, but for his future after boxing. We will protect our fighters from the dirty dealings of Promoters, Matchmakers and others in this business, who continually take advantage of fighters. These athletes have nothing to show for all the hardwork and dedication when their careers are over. I want to make sure every fighter we work with gets exactly what they deserve and leaves the ring better suited for their future outside the squared circle."

The spirited Rivera has quickly become known in the promotional and matchmaking circles as a ruthless negotiator and meticulous manager who works to make ensure that the fighter is treated well and properly moved to best position himself for continued success.

"We want our fighters to not only be successful in their own life, but to give back to others less fortunate. As part of MAK Boxing, our fighters will give back to the community and we feel it will help them become some of the more popular boxers in the region. We will only be successful if our fighters are satisfied with the efforts we put forth in providing them with opportunities to better themselves. Our vision caters to most any fighter and we wish to be known as one of the most sought after companies by any young fighter in the sport today."

Our team will work hard to ensure that each fighter will get the proper bouts in order to maximize their abilities as they rise through the professional ranks."
