EXCLUSIVE: Shakan Pitters reflects on Ultimate Boxxer victory

Ultimate Boxxer champion Shakan Pitters reflects on tournament experience and voiced he is willing to do it again.

In a competitive night of domestic boxing, The indigo at the O2 hosted Ultimate Boxxer’s 2nd tournament where Pitters outworked and outclassed all his opponents to claim victory.

Reflecting on a glorious night, Pitters spoke about his participation: “It was good, there was a good crowd to showcase my skills to. I just boxed my game there. I didn’t find it too hard,” Pitters exclusively told World Boxing News.

“No disrespect to my opponents but I just think that my fighting style and how I fought just made it easier for me. I just used my attributes well and it made the fights easier.”

Most noticeably in the audience was the large Birmingham crowd that Pitters had brought down with him.

“We brought a good amount of fans there. We got a couple of coaches full of Birmingham fans but I gained a lot of fans there too.

“I’ve been looking back on my Instagram stories and my messages.  A lot of people genuinely said they’re a fan of myself now and they’ll watch me.

“Also. how amazing it was, without trying to blow my own trumpet that’s what they were saying.

“A lot of them became fans within the arena. I believe as well because looking back at all the messages it was all positive feedback.”


Ultimate Boxxer, which started in April this year, is yet to place its next event but Pitters showed keen interest to participate in any way, shape or form.

“Yeah possibly. I’m a boxing fan myself, I love getting involved and I’d love to be back on the show even if it was to box on the undercard. Even if I wasn’t on it I’d be there myself to watch it.

“I was there at the first one in Manchester and that’s what inspired me to get on it. The whole concept and the buzz behind it was exciting to see,” he concluded.
