Hafiz is a young talent in the local boxing community and epitomes hardwork and dedication. He now represents Singapore in the Bantamweight category of 56kg and has won gold in tournaments he competed in. His love for sports in general and willpower to train is unwavering so he eventually followed his passion to be a boxing trainer. He is motivated by progress the members show in terms of skill and mental resilience! He can be seen at the gym almost everyday, training, conducting classes and personal training appointments with clients.

He spends his free time browsing boxing videos just to keep learning new tricks and skills that boxers are practicing today. This constant learning process keeps him sharp and gives him more opportunities to share with the members on the skills of the trade. Hafiz is friendly and honest. Don’t be fooled by his quiet demeanor. He can be quite chatty!

Always leading the fight team in runs as his long legs and previous vocation as a Diver in the Navy makes him a great pacer for road works. His discipline and incredible stamina pays off as he won by TKO 2 of his matches by landing barraging punches.
