Breaker Doing It For His Brother

Boxing has long been considered the sweet science so it is only fitting that the latest pugilist to enter the arena to represent his home town of Birmingham runs a dessert shop when he’s not in the ring.

Boxing has long been considered the sweet science so it is only fitting that the latest pugilist to enter the arena to represent his home town of Birmingham runs a dessert shop when he’s not in the ring.

 

Super welterweight Mussab Abubaker next features on BCB Promotions’ festive fight night at the Holiday Inn Queensway, in Birmingham city centre, on Saturday December 21. The show is called ‘Seasons Beatings’.

 

But he knows only too well just how difficult the sport can be mentally particularly when you have personal trauma to deal with which can affect your mind in the ring.

 

Mussab - known as Breaker – lost his brother Abdul Rahman just over a year ago after the 24-year-old was shot dead at a Birmingham street party.

T

he pair were well known in the community for their dessert shop Bubble Rolls on Ladypool Road and for Mussab it has been a trying time as he battles to support his family, maintain his brother’s memory and concentrate on his recently acquired professional career as a boxer.

 

You might think all the personal tragedy would weigh heavy on the shoulders of the 26-year-old but if anything the sad loss of Abdul has galvanised Mussab who is using the incident to draw on his inner strengths and use it in the ring to his advantage.

 

Under the watchful eye of trainer Errol Johnson at BCB Boxing Mussab has been working hard in the gym to make sure his fitness levels are in peak form and using the strict training regime to focus his mind and prepare for his next encounter.

Since turning pro Breaker has won all three of his bouts to date; beating Danny Little, Paul Cummings and last time out Dale Arrowsmith.

 

He has pledged every win since coming back to the sport will be in his late brother’s honour.

 

“Nothing can bring my brother back, but he was always a big supporter of me following my dreams and this is what I want to do,” Abubaker said.

 

“Boxing is a state of mind, in many ways, so there’s no way you can fight unless you are thinking straight. That has taken some time. “We are at a point now where it’s helping me, by keeping my brain active through the training and getting ready to get in there again.

 

“Every single day I am in the gym, I’m learning and it’s giving me something to focus on. I’m improving all of the time.
