The “Ultimate Boxxer”
Shakan Pitters is a Light Heavyweight fighter from the Midlands. Having recently won the Ultimate Boxxer competition live on Lad Bible, Shakan is not a hot prospect in the light heavyweight division.
Having played football for West Brom as a teenager it would be Shakans dream to lift a title on the pitch. His Dad was a professional fighter, so when he was released from West Brom as a kid, he started to go to the local gyms. He only really started focusing on fighting when his daughter came along at the age of 22.
Working With Shakan
It’s always amazing from Suzi Wong point of view working with Shakan as he allows us creative freedom on his kits. Usually giving us a colour to work to we send him designs to choose from. As Shakan is so tall he looks amazing in everything. We once had a bit of miscommunication on a back jacket length which was funny when we got the picture of Shakan looking like he had his little girls jacket on. We swiftly corrected this and we now have the jacket signed up in the Suzi Wong design studio.
