In this exclusive episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly and Aki Hussain host the WBO European Super Welterweight Champion Hamzah Sheeraz.
The undefeated boxer shares his thoughts and feelings after becoming a European champion last November and what he’s doing in preparation for his first title defence on Saturday 11th April at the 02 Arena.
The east Londoner also explains the values and morals which have shaped him since childhood, and how the same mindset is shared by his entire team in keeping him headstrong and humble during his journey.
Topics of discussion also include the role of Islam in Hamzah’s life as a professional boxer, handling fame and wealth, and how contact sports can help deter youth from a life of crime and gangs.

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
