Boxer Who Was Raped Aged 10 Shares His Story Of Finding Support

Studies show that 1 in 6 men have been targets of rape or sexual abuse, that’s 5 million men in the UK. Abusers don’t discriminate – it can happen to any man, of any age, race, class or sexual identity.

Everyone reacts to traumatic events in their own complex way. Research has shown that some common effects men may experience are thoughts and feelings of anger, shame, guilt, numbness, or flashbacks, nightmares, and physical or mental health problems.

Getting confidential support can be key to helping men who have experienced sexual abuse to recover, no matter how long the abuse originally took place.

A boxer who was raped when he was 10-years-old has hailed the ‘life-saving’ support he has received.
