Richardson was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and left home when he was 14. He was jailed as a teenager. According to the New York Times, "Boxing took Richardson from the streets that almost swallowed him in north Philadelphia, gave him energy and purpose." He is a head trainer in the Concrete Gym in Philadelphia, and is a trainer in several gyms across Philadelphia.
