More On The Menifield Family
Alonzo Menifield’s family background has garnered significant attention from the media.
After the passing of their father, Alonzo Jr., Menifield and his brother Xavier were raised by their mother.
When Alonzo was 14, California Child Protective Services took him and his brother away from their mother to keep them in the foster care system because she indulged in drugs.
Alonzo then had to experience the challenging reality of moving between 12 different foster homes. But, the athlete’s life took a U-turn when he met Godwin Ezenwa.
Godwin not only provided a safe and nurturing environment but also officially adopted Alonzo and his brother Cecil.
His positive influence and guidance played a vital role in shaping Alonzo into the man he is today.
Alonzo credits Godwin’s adoption for his transformation, acknowledging that he may not have achieved his current success as a fighter and parent without his support.
