From the fighting Province of Ontario, home of Lennox Lewis and Chuvalo, we bring you Mr. Fisnik Lokku!
This Bond traders career brought him to New York 3 years ago. Always a fan of boxing the Ward vs Kovalev 2 fight motivated Fiz get into a boxing gym and he quickly got addicted. This bout, this first, is just the next step in challenging himself in the sport. “The reason I want to do this fight is to push myself to get better, to put the skills I’ve learned to the test and to raise money for a good cause”
We asked who his sports heroes are “My hero in boxing is Andre Ward or Danny Jacobs - they both overcame quite a bit in their lifetimes to go on and become champions. Elsewhere in the sports world I always looked up to Allen Iverson and more recently LeBron James... what he’s been able to do for underprivileged kids in Ohio is inspiring.”
Like most of our Give A Kid Participants, Fiz grew up in a single parent low income household. Fiz considers becoming financially independent since teenage years and eventually moving to the states alone to start my career is biggest life challenge to date.
We applaud your fighting spirit and really look forward to your bout.
