Our very own Lenny Sullivan, from the Capricorn Leisure arm of the business, was proud to have been given the opportunity to be head of security for up and coming Bolton boxer Khaleel Majid, who is being hailed as the new Prince Naseem, at his recent fight.
The 10 stone man, signed to top promoter Frank Warren, and who only turned 21 in May, recently defeated Lee Hallett, a man ten years older and with 9 – 0 wins under his belt. Our man Lenny was so impressed by his performance that he treated the boxer to his own whole chicken after the bout!
Majid got into boxing at an early age, and almost by accident.
He accompanied his father, Amar, to Thai boxing sessions but found he was always using his fists.
“I was about eight and going with my dad to Thai boxing which he did for fitness” he said. “but I kept getting told off for using my hands all the time. I just found it natural and that’s when the transition to boxing happened. Boxing just clicked with me, I was good at it, a natural, so I turned to boxing.”
Capricorn will be providing all his security going forward and we’re expecting great things from Khaleel, and look forward to providing several security and CP officers for him once he hits the Big Shows!
