PROBELLUM SIGN TEENAGE AMATEUR STAR DUBBED THE ‘NEXT AMIR KHAN’

PhilBoxing.com


LONDON, MARCH 29 – Probellum have added the lightning quick teenage amateur Ali Tazeem to its growing stable of red-hot prospects.

The 18-year-old won 15 international gold medals in a 51-bout amateur career and has earned a glowing endorsement from British boxing great Amir Khan who predicted: “He will be the next me and make history.”

Tazeem, who was born in Wolverhampton, announced his deal with Probellum, the fastest growing brand in boxing, after winning his final amateur bout for the Pound 4 Pound Academy on Saturday, in front of a packed crowd in Birmingham.

The hugely popular Tazeem forced a standing count of his opponent on the way to a unanimous points victory, with his dazzling performance also including an ‘Ali Shuffle’ to entertain his fans.

“I’ve followed Ali Tazeem’s career for years now and I can assure everyone he’s got all the tools to make it to the very top of this sport,” said Sam Jones, Probellum’s Head of Talent Relations.

“He’s 18 years old so there is no need to rush him, we can build him nice and slowly, so we know exactly when he’s ready to make the step up. But let me tell you, I cannot wait to watch this journey unfold.”

Tazeem, who won 45 times as an amateur and won medals at major tournaments such as the Monkstown Box Cup, joins Probellum’s impressive list of young talent.

Olympic silver medallist Pat McCormack announced himself to the pros with a knockout win in Newcastle last week, on a card which also included the exciting Mark Dickinson, while Peter and Joe McGrail as well as debutant Luke McCormack look to further enhance their reputations on Probellum’s Liverpool show next month.

“I’ve made a lot of moves inside the ring, but the best move I’ve made in my career is signing with Probellum,” buzzed Ali Tazeem.

“With hard work and dedication, I know I can be the best in the business, especially with the support of Sam Jones, Probellum, my team and great people around me.”

Tazeem has also been taken on the pads by the legendary Floyd Mayweather Snr and the teenager has delivered boxing training to Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore.
