My Story

Lionel Edward Rose MBE (21 June 1948–8 May 2011) was an Australian bantamweight boxer, the first indigenous Australian to win a world title.


Rose was Australian of the Year in 1968, the first Aboriginal Australian to be awarded the honour. The same year he was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE). In 2003 he was an inaugural inductee in the Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame. Rose's boxing gloves featured in a 2005 Australia Post stamp issue. In 2005 Rose was awarded the Ella Lifetime Achievement Award for Contribution to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sport.
