Rashad "The Hitman" Shahid Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, Rashad Shahid began boxing at the age of 15 years old. A 5x Georgia Game Champion, Rashad compiled an amateur record of 45-6. After a promising amateur career, the Georgia native decided to pursue his dream of becoming a world champion and turned professional at the age of 18. Now training out of San Diego, CA under the tutelage of Basheer Abdullah, the hard-hitting righty has developed a fan friendly style winning four of his first five fights by knockout. Rashad counts the legendary Meldrick Taylor, Sugar Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns as his heroes.
