‘Stone Cold’ Steve Moxon has cleared a lot of hurdles in his six years of training and is standing on the brink of international success. He fights with a no-fear confidence and is a natural. His ability, skill and dedication will see more to come as he pushes his limits to become a better fighter.
Originally from Ballan, a small town in Victoria, Australia on the outskirts of Ballarat, he moved to Sydney, Australia in 2010 to join the team at Boxing Works Sydney with the ambition to become a prime world title contender. In July 2012, he moved back home to Ballarat to join the team at Barbarian Muay Thai.
Discovering an interest in kickboxing at the age of 18 plus his early admiration of Mike Tyson’s explosive performances in the ring, have motivated him towards achieving multiple titles and attaining an impressive fight record.
With an undefeated 4-0 professional boxing record (including 3 KO wins) across 3 different weight divisions and a professional kickboxing record of 36 fights under his belt, 31 wins with 21 by KO, Moxon’s fast, explosive and fluid fighting style, mark him as one of the most talented and entertaining fighters on the global circuit today.
At 169 cm (5-foot-5), the 25-year-old Moxon, one of the hottest properties on the Australian fight circuit, is also one of the shortest fighters in his weight class. That might explain why his favourite fighter of all time is two-time heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, one of the shortest, but most lethal heavyweight fighters of all-time who toppled dozens of much physically larger opponents throughout his memorable career. Moxon is a fiery mass of muscle and movement and don’t let his height fool you – it didn’t stop him from beating Masayuki Kanmun Segara, the 6’ 2” southpaw Japanese champ, in the 2010 K-1 Oceania finals.
Moxon’s dynamite-like power in both hands combined with the tremendous amount of forward pressure he puts on opponents while looking for the finish from the opening bell, have been the key factors behind his repeated, highlight-reel worthy finishes.
In one of his greatest achievements, Moxon represented Australia in the 2010 Enfusion Fight series in Koh Samui, Thailand, where he got to train and fight against some of the worlds best fighters.
After that, 2011 was an even bigger year, competing and winning against some of the top ranked fighters in the sport in 8 fights over 12 months – constantly keeping motivated and fuelled for more action. Given the choice, he’d fight every week!
For Moxon, the fight is the easy part, what gets him there is training in the gym every day and giving 100% every session. A typical training day includes a conditioning workout, plenty of contact drills, sparring sessions with diverse partners in different fighting styles including boxing, kickboxing and everything in between and to top it off runs through the week are 8km each!
And when he’s not training himself, Moxon can be found coaching others.
Holding the pads and guiding amateur fighters not only allows him the opportunity to give back to the fighting community, but also the time to study new prospects, new moves and areas for self improvement – keeping him humble and on-form.
With his short term goals sighted most positively on ultimate success in the ring, his long term future includes his partner, Kellie Dean, who describes him as “Brutal in the ring, but a big softie outside of it”.
And when its time to hang up the gloves his ambition is to build self-esteem in young kids through coaching and self-defence training (and possibly having one or two of his own).
2012 has been an epic year to date with Moxon taking on some of the best fighters in the business including Wes Capper and Frankie Giorgi, running a full camp and spending considerable time with some of the best coaches, fighters and industry veterans in Las Vegas, USA and fulfilling his quest by becoming the new WKF Middleweight Champion of the World.
Moxon ended 2012 with a win over Mostafa Abdollahi at Kings of Kombat 8 on December 8, 2012. He dropped Abdollahi once in the first and then finished him in the second round, closing off a successful year with 6 wins including 3 by way of KO.
Moxon’s notable success in 2012 brought significant emerging opportunities across the world, most notably in the US and Europe, where Moxon’s talent, record and persona has been getting a lot of attention and winning a lot of fans. It attracted top promotion Glory, with whom he signed a multi-year multi-fight deal in September 2012.
With the opportunity to fight on the biggest kickboxing stage in the world in 2013, Moxon has the potential to be a huge hit with fight fans worldwide and make 2013 an even bigger year.
Moxon will make his Glory debut against Jordan Watson at Glory 5 in London on March 23, 2013.
