Zahid Hussain has bounced back from boxing heartbreak to become English Super-Bantamweight champion. He had the greatest night of his career in Doncaster in October 2022 winning a unanimous points decision over Razaq Najib who had previously beaten him. When they met previously his fellow Yorkshireman claimed 96-94 decision over ten hard fought rounds - a decision Hussain bitterly disputes. ‘The Magic Man,’ made no mistake in the return. Again, it was a tough ten rounds, but Hussain’s dominance in the second half of the fight saw him home 100-92, 97-94 and 98-93.

 

It was Hussain’s first fight since being stopped inside two rounds by blue chip prospect Hopey Price in September 2021. He waited until July 2023 for his first defence which took place in Wakefield and cheered on by his army of fans including top jockey Paul Mulrennan, 10-1 Londoner Andre Grant was unanimously outpointed in a decent ten rounder.

 

Zahid won the Central Area Featherweight title in September 2019 when he comfortably outpointed George Brennan. Hussain who turned professional in April 2014 won subsequent fights on points against Jake Pollard and Luke Fash, who he beat over six rounds in February 2020 before Price derailed him. He now hopes to get in the British title picture. ends
