Who is Rain Mako?

Rain Mako is a former female boxer who currently lives in Melbourne, Australia.

Mako helped popularize women's boxing in Oceania: while boxing is still considered by most to be a male sport, women's boxing has enjoyed a rise in popularity since 1996, and Mako boxed from 2000 to 2001.

Mako's career in boxing spanned over the 2 years of 2000 to 2001,but in that time she provided female boxing with pazzazz and glamour with her amazonian physique and film star looks - a polite gentle individual outside the ring, but a tiger within it.

Mako's boxing opportunities were limited in Australia, and although her last 2 fights were short of the quality of her first 4,her body language suggested she needed bigger name opponents to fight to keep up her spirit and interest. Efforts to coax Leila Ali, the daughter of the famous Muhammad Ali, to fight her anywhere were blocked apparently after Ali viewed some of Mako's fights on video.

Mako has appeared on TV in Australia on current affairs programs such as "A Current Affair" and "Sixty Minutes" supporting women's boxing as a healthy fitness pursuit, not a novelty event.
