Unsung Hero - Asam Fiaz
Each Friday we pay homage to a boxing ‘unsung hero’. The lifeblood of the sport - the men and women who have contributed so much and asked for so little, who have saved lives and transformed futures.
This week it's the turn of Asam Fiaz, who helps to coach world level fighters alongside Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis whilst maintaining his amateur boxing commitments with NTX Gen ABC.
His brother, Aqib Fiaz, is one of the top talents British boxing has to offer, and he owes a lot of that to the work done with Asam.
"For me, Asam's probably one of the most selfless people I know," Aqib said. "I can't even explain how much he has helped me, but along the way he's helped so many amateur boxers."
"He doesn't do it for money or anything like that, he does it because he loves the game."
Im Hamza is an amateur boxer at NTX Gen ABC, and he heaped praise of his head coach.
"I took five years out of boxing and with Asam's help I built my confidence up to return and reach the national finals in my first year back," he said.
"He doesn't get the credit he deserves, and I would like to say thank you to him for believing in me."
