Fight artist Richard Slone talks about his decorated career at the easel and at the fights.
Richard originally went to the US to box and wound up living with heavyweight legend Joe Frazier in Philadelphia. Several years later, he was at the Kronk in Detroit with Emanuel Steward, becoming a fixture in the gym and in the corner of some of the sport's biggest names.
But he's most famous for his artwork, for giving colour to the promotion of some of the sport's biggest fights, including it's biggest – Mayweather-Pacquiao – and it's allowed him to paint for high profile clients from Denzel Washington to Madonna and Donald Trump to Eminem.
