AQIB FIAZ is one of the most exciting prospects in Britain with trainer Jamie Moore and manager Steve Wood which are conﬁdent that he can reach the top of the world.
He has already landed a promotional contract with Matchroom and his proﬁle soared after a brief rivalry with Kane Baker.
Aqib was due to face Baker in August 2020 , but he felt unwell and pulled out at the 11th hour sparking a war of words.
They ﬁnally got to settle the score two months later, and Fiaz came through his ﬁrst eight rounder deserving the verdict after a tough contest.
He earned his multi-ﬁght deal with Eddie Hearn’s organisation after impressing against Dean Jones back in March 2020 when he fulﬁlled a personal ambition to box at Manchester Arena.
The talented Oldham youngster only turned professional last year and sold stacks of tickets for VIP Promotions shows, boxing on four occasions.
He came through four rounders against Ibrar Riaz, Ben Fields and Daniel Alder before moving up to six rounds and winning every round against Jamie Speight.
He fought on one of Hearn’s swanky Fight Camp cards in August 2021 and despite some personal problems away from boxing outscored Kevin Baldospino over eight rounds.
As an amateur he represented his country at Senior level twice.
In 75 amateur bouts, Fiaz won nine Area Titles and a National Youth Title at 60kg in 2017.
