Escaping Warsaw in the early 1960’s at the age of 5 at the end of the German occupation of twenty years and the start of the Cold War Missel conflict with Cuba was enough for Boxers parents to make a new life in Australia. Always known as the ‘troublemaker’, boxer survived a high speed motorcycle accident at the age of 17 leaving him in a coma for 6 months and devastating injuries which still plague him today. By the 1980’s Boxer was detained at one of Australia’s roughest Prisons ‘ Bogo Road’ in Brisbane ( Now closed for humanitarian reasons) where he was released after 10 long years. When asked what put him into ‘Bogo Road’ his positive smile and ‘Glass half Full’ attitude kicks in as he says, “keeping my mouth shut”. Boxer then became a very respected public figure around Sydney’s notorious Kings Cross and Eastern suburb venues and nightclubs when one day he was by a casting agent. Boxers devilishly and charismatic presence moved on to Australian screens where he eventually played one of Australia’s favourite bad guys, Bobo Gigliotti in hit comedy TV series Fat Pizza now on Netflix. Boxer reminds people who would like to develop a successful acting career, “Everyone has something special. Something different to offer. Always remember it could be raining one day and sunny the next…or the other way around. Keep going.”
