Story Summary

After the death of his newborn son, Maximus, in 2014, professional kickboxer Richard Abraham made a promise to dedicate himself to living in his son’s memory. Richard now takes advantage of every moment, from opening his gym Maximus Muay Thai to his training and fight career, while being a loving father of five.

“The things I’ve experienced in life, and I’ve seen some tough times. Losing my son was the toughest thing I’ve ever gone through. But it taught me that I can overcome anything, and made me a better father and man.”
