Security Boss who turned to professional boxing to remain disciplined

Security Boss who turned to professional boxing to remain disciplined

Entrepreneur & Security boss Sheikh Waziri is a dedicated businessman who has built a budding business internationally in the security sector, starting from being security to guard, to professional executive/VIP bodyguard, to a highly respected security trainer and practising security consultant in the UK and Africa. He is currently affiliated with shake1records, Phoenix SW security ltd Nigeria and shields transatlantic security Uk.

Sheikh is also a professional Nigerian British boxer based in London. He is a 33-year old skilful orthodox boxer who recently turned professional from the unlicensed boxing background. Sheikh’s record consists of a few wins,1 draw and a loss on points, with a 100 per cent knock out ratio amongst other heavyweights, allowing Sheikh to be recognised by Xzavier Miller the head coach at London based IQ Boxing.

Sheikh took up boxing in 2008 on the white-collar amateur competition and progressed to a semi-professional unlicensed competition where he won the British and European heavyweight title.

Sheikh turned to professional boxing after having to deal with the tragic loss of his sister in 2016 and subsequently his father in 2017. He rose from the ashes like the phoenix showing the great character of a true champion and developed the mental durability that led him to be accepted by the British Boxing Board of Control. Despite having no amateur experience, the British Boxing Board of Control saw a special individual with great skills and passion for sport and made an exception. Sheikh has rapidly built his reputation and since trained with Olympic medal winners and British, American international boxers that have been trained by recognised boxing coached in London and worldwide.

Coined as the ‘Black Scorpion’ due to his quick slick movements and ability to adapt to all types of situations in the ring, Sheikh’s smooth movements in the ring also tie in with his powerful right hand which is reflective of the sting in a scorpion’s tail. He is fast becoming a buzz on the internet on this Instagram handle @bigsheikh1.

Sheikh graduated from the University of Derby with a BA Honours in criminal justice, later going on to study the Diploma/Masters programme in Security and Risk Management at Loughborough University. Sheikh also played American Football for both universities he attended and obtained several awards and achievements including Sports Personality of the Year.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
