Billy The Kid: “The Rising Star of the North”
Billy The Kid (Bilal Rehman), an aspiring World Champion boxer from Rochdale. Currently ranked 13th in the UK, Rehman is a “Central Area Super Lightweight Champion”.
Born and raised in Rochdale, Manchester, Rehman began boxing at the age of 17 and has since gained a fierce reputation.
With a lifelong interest in the sport, Billy The Kid tried his local boxing club with a group of friends, where his fast footwork immediately caught his coach’s eye.
“When I was little, I used to put on the Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis fight every day. However, I didn’t start boxing until after I left school. I didn’t have the fitness for Boxing, I was exhausted after about two press-ups, though my footwork was naturally there. When I started sparring, the coaches were surprised when I said that I had never boxed before.”
-Billy The Kid, Mark Luther Thomas Word Press.
6ft 1inches tall, Billy The Kid now sits as a 12-0 Undefeated Professional Boxer. Defeating, in only his first fight, the unbeaten Glaswegian Barry Craig, Bilal has sincegone on to box on major Manchester fight cards, including televised fight nights such as the stacked out “Amir Khan Vs Logreco” bill on Sky in early April 2018.
With a passion for the sport of Boxing and an admiration for the coaches that made his career possible, it is Rehman’s dream to see his own “BTK Boxing Academy” enable other young enthusiastic Boxers to reach their goals and to create another Future star.
Having made the journey himself, Rehman founded a Boxing gym that provides all the services needed to make this happen. With state-of-the-art training facilities, experienced coaches and professional Boxing athletes on hand, the BTK Boxing Academy provides everything a young boxer will need to begin their training, including high-end health and fitness facilities to help members get in shape.
