Winning Streak Continues For Uk’s First Diabetic Boxer Muhammad Ali

Type one diabetic boxer Muhammad Ali’s winning streak continues after defeating MJ Hall in his fourth pro fight in Bolton on Saturday (9 March).

Ali defeated Hall 40-36 on points after four rounds at the Macron Stadium to retain his unbeaten status.

He also has his eye on a title fight within the next year.

Ali made history in September 2018, becoming the first UK boxer with type one diabetes to fight, following a three-year battle against the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC).

Ali had previously had his application for a professional licence turned down by the BBBofC as a result of his medical condition, because checking blood sugar levels during a fight would be ‘too disruptive’ – despite contradictory advice from the national governing body for boxing.

With the support of manager Asad Shamim and medical doctor, Ian Gallan, a leading diabetes consultant in the UK, the decision was overturned.

I made boxing history on 9th May 2018 after becoming World’s first type1 diabetic to be granted a professional licence by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBOfC). I am an ambassador for Diabetes UK, JDRF, IDF and on track to become world champion in the near future.
