How did Freeze MacBones become famous?
Preferring to go by his ring persona Freezy MacBones, the 33-year-old is poised to turn pro – and he has already enjoyed a stunning audition.
A trial fight was arranged by a promotional company, wanting to see what the Brixton-based slugger was all about.
He went in the ring against a man significantly bigger, but soon had him knocked spark out with his head resting on the bottom rope.
Reflecting on the fight, the light-heavyweight told Sky Sports: “Everything was cool until he hit me hard. A week later I’ve seen the video, 50 Cent, [Floyd] Mayweather, everyone was posting it. It was crazy. Everyone was asking, who is this guy? That’s how it happened.”
He has lofty ambitions
MacBones has come to the sport very late, but he still has soaring ambitions.
“One thing about Freezy is I don’t look at what others are doing, I only look at what I am doing and where I am going and I want the best for myself, so I always keep working,” MacBones explained.
“I know I started late, but it doesn’t mean I can’t do it or it’s not possible and I’m going to make it possible. It’s late but it’s how you end up and I want to be a world champion one day.”
How tall is Freeze MacBones?
MacBones is a healthy boxer with a well-built physique. There is not enough information about his body measurements, however, Vidmid estimates he stands at a height of 5 feet 8 inches tall. This assumption was made by visualizing his photographs.
MacBone has been endorsed by rapper 50 Cent and retired boxer Mayweather.
The sparring clip from one of his fights where he knocked down a man 30kg heavier than him went viral and it was even re-posted by rapper 50 Cent and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr, which led to MacBones gaining a huge social media following.
“I was shocked because it happened a lot in my gym where I put people to sleep, so it was nothing new, but when this happens in the gym we don’t bring it out so no one knows what happens.
“But, for this one, people were there and they pulled their phones out and all of sudden a week later 50 Cent posted the video and he asked ‘who is this guy?’ and everyone was tagging me.
“At this time my social media had 7k and boom it went up to 25k and now I have over 100k followers.”
MacBones was inspired by Mike Tyson. People call him the Britain Mike Tyson.
Off the back of this video, MacBones also began being labeled as the ‘British Mike Tyson’, which he takes as a huge compliment.
“It’s huge,” MacBones said. “It’s like someone comparing a Christian to Jesus, it’s a big thing because Mike is the GOAT in the game.
“His skills and style were different and up to today we haven’t seen anything like that, so for people to say I fight like Tyson, it means a lot because he is a guy I look up to.
“People say I’m the British Mike Tyson and it makes me work harder. Obviously, I’m not Mike and I can’t be like him, he’s the only one, nobody can be like him, but we always learn from each other.”
Tyson was not the only fighter who lured MacBones to start boxing, he was also inspired after watching the Mayweather Jr vs Manny Pacquiao fight in 2015.
“That was the first time I paid more attention to boxing. I was a big fan of Mike Tyson back home and he was the only boxer I knew, so when I saw Mayweather and Pacquiao and the way Mayweather was running around the ring, I thought ‘I can do this job’ I used to call him chicken and laugh,” MacBones revealed.

“Amateur is a foundation. It’s the foundation of boxing before you turn pro. If you don’t have any amateur record or history, how can you become a good boxer?
“I use my losses to motivate me to become who I am. It makes me savage, an animal.”
In an interview with First Round Media, he said: “I don’t want to be like other boxers who turn pro, they go inside there, and they keep lost and lost.
“Obviously, I lost six fights in amateur, and I don’t want to be like that in my professional profile. I would say next year Freezy will come out, but I can’t give you [specific] time. December, October, or November next year or something, but Freezy will come out no matter what. It’s about time, baby!”
