He is regarded by many boxing pundits as the ‘next big thing’. Leeds born Ismail Khan is creating waves within the pugilistic sport and has already created quite a stir after winning the 52kg Senior Elite English Title Belt against Hull ABC’s Ryan Gibbons in February.
With his baby faced looks, Khan can easily be described as the next ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’, a name that was used to describe hall of famer Marco Antonio Barrera throughout his career. With lighting hands and equally swift footwork, Khan’s natural ability and skill level has surprised many.
The Elite English belt is the latest accolade to join the young prospect’s growing collection and one which was made extra special with the support of his team.
“I can’t believe this achievement,” he said. “I have an amazing team at KBW, brilliant coaches and team mates that keep me motivated, and I wouldn’t be where I am without them all.
“I also want to say a special thank you to my sponsor for their continued support.”
