Sohail came over to England from Afghanistan as young child without his parents or family. He lived in care and every day of his life growing up was a struggle.
Nothing was ever given to Sohail and he used his considerable intelligence to develop a tenacious work ethic. Martial Arts is where Sohail found an outlet to channel his energy and quickly became a talented Taekwondo fighter.
It was not until he started boxing that he truly found his calling in life. For Sohail, boxing is an expression where every last move is calculated. He uses his intelligence to manoeuvre himself into position and unleash his blistering speed.
Sohail never forgets where he came from and has a deep rooted kindness that shines through in his smile that would light up any room.
