Bilal Mahasin is the current Jr. Welterweight GBO Champion (Bay Area Boxing Champion), a youth mentor and motivational speaker. He’s also the Head Coach of the Boxing For Health Amateur Boxing Team. Bilal grew up in the rough streets of East Oakland where street fighting was normal and high praised. As a troubled youth, he fell victim to crime and was taking a self-destructive path until he discovered boxing at the age of 15. Bilal now sees boxing as a “savior” and believes that boxing is a powerful tool which could help to heal traumatized communities. “The boxing ring is life. And every tool learned in boxing can be used in everyday life.” -Bilal Mahasin
