Badou Jack, 3-Division World Champion,
Aims For 4th Division Title
Three division world champion, Badou Jack, the first Muslim
to secure a world title on Middle East ground in the Kingdom
of Saudi Arabia, embarks on a historic journey towards his
fourth world title, announced Boxing Advisor Amer Abdallah.
Recognized as one of the most underrated fighters of his
era, Jack (28-3-3, 17 KOs), the current WBC Cruiserweight
champion in recess, stands not only as a powerhouse in the
ring but also as a global philanthropist. His influence
extends into the Middle East, with significant contributions
that bring immense positivity to the Muslim community,
positioning him as an ambassador for his faith.
"I started boxing to create a legacy, fight the best in the
world, while being led by my faith," stated Badou Jack.
"Since my last fight, I've been back in the gym preparing
for my next fight and I’m ready for another challenge.
Boxing is more than a sport…it's a lifestyle. I'm 40 years
old, but when you live a disciplined life and take care of
yourself, age is just a number. I'm prepared to face anyone
from Cruiserweight to heavyweight – let’s go!"
Beyond the ring, he promotes the Badou Jack Foundation,
where his slogan reads "Giving Children Across the Globe a
Fighting Chance in Life." Having already made a profound
impact on thousands of orphans, refugees, and children in
need worldwide, Badou is a modern-day hero.
A seasoned pugilist with a record of facing nine world
champions, Jack now eyes an unprecedented fourth division
title after a career-defining 12th round knockout victory
over defending World Champion Ilunga Makabu (29-4, 25 KOs),
in February of last year. Currently training in Dubai, the
UAE resident combines veteran experience with the hunger of
a rising contender.
“I’ve never felt this hungry in my career as I do now,”
continued Badou Jack. “I know what it takes to become great,
and I’m ready to close out my career with a bang.”
"Beyond his talent inside the ring, Badou Jack is a genuine
ambassador for the sport and a philanthropist dedicated to
creating a positive influence globally, transcending
religious and racial boundaries," stated Amer Abdallah. "His
background and the values he embodies have resonated
particularly well in the Middle East, making him a fighter
embraced by the region. With the Middle East emerging as a
pivotal hub for boxing, we anticipate a stellar 2024,
marking another extraordinary year for Badou."
